New Comparison Chart Helps Employers and Health Insurance Professionals Understand HSAs, HRAs, HRPs, and FSAs
Zane Benefits, which provides small businesses with simple and friendly healthcare solutions, announced today the publication of a new guide "HSA vs. HRA vs. HRP vs. FSA." The easy-to-understand comparison chart helps employers and health insurance professionals understand account-based health plans.
According to Zane Benefits, health insurance costs in the U.S. are rising at an exponential rate. As such, employers are adopting account-based health plans (ABHPs) as a strategy to lower the cost of healthcare without reducing coverage for employees.
An ABHP is a consumer-directed strategy that pairs a group health insurance plan with a tax-advantaged medical spending account. With a total-replacement ABHP, the medical spending account is offered as the main health benefit plan - instead of a group health insurance plan.
The new guide provides a straight-forward comparison chart of the four most common types of medical spending accounts used with ABHPs, including:
Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)
Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs)
Healthcare Reimbursement Plans (HRPs)
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)
Employers, health insurance professionals, and CPAs are invited to download the new guide to understand the similarities and differences of HSAs, HRAs, HRPs, and FSAs.
The 6-page comparison chart is available for free download at the zanebenefits.com website and covers the following topics:

Key features of HSAs, HRAs, HRPs, and FSAs
Important changes for 2015
