Health Reimbursement Arrangements/Accounts (HRAs)

ALL ABOUT HRAs
HRAs offer savings and money back

Earn tax deductions on an account you own

Employers fund and own HRAs, so you decide how much to contribute. You can deduct reimbursed employee health care expenses as business expenses and exclude them from your employees’ gross income.

Reimburse employees with tax-free dollars

Employees can get money back, tax-free, for out-of-pocket eligible health care expenses, up to a fixed dollar amount each year. Employers fund the account, but it doesn’t count as taxable income. That means employees use tax-free dollars to pay for certain health care expenses. And unused funds can roll over to the next year.

Make it easy with the PayFlex Card®

Want to provide extra convenience? Offer the PayFlex Card to your employees. It provides instant access to their funds for eligible expenses at qualified merchants.

TYPES OF HRAs

Understanding HRAs

Standard and limited HRAs

A standard HRA reimburses employees for eligible health care expenses. A limited HRA provides reimbursement for certain health care expenses before employees meet their deductible. Afterward, the limited HRA turns into a standard HRA. 

Retiree Reimbursement Accounts (RRAs) 

RRAs are a special type of HRA. They provide reimbursement for eligible expenses during retirement.
