Customized solutions for more affordable care
No matter which deductible plan and health payment account you choose to pair together, you and your employees will get a wealth of features and benefits that’ll help you get the most out of your health care strategy.
Choose from three types of health payment accounts administered through Kaiser Permanente:
Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA)
Employees have the option of using employer-contributed funds to pay for qualified medical expenses on a tax-free basis.1 Several HRA types are available, ranging from comprehensive to more limited coverage.
Health Savings Account (HSA)
Employees own their HSA, which can be used to pay for qualified medical expenses. 2 The money employees contribute to this account through payroll withholdings isn’t considered part of their wages, so they won’t be taxed on it.
Flexible Savings Account (FSA)
Employees make pretax contributions to a savings account they can use to pay for a wide range of qualified medical expenses — including doctor visits, prescription drugs, lab tests — or dependent care expenses such as child care. 3
