The cost to provide healthcare coverage to your employees is becoming less affordable every year. Like many companies, you need to control spending to stay competitive but rising health care expenses are impacting your profits. A High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) paired with a Health Savings Account (HSA) is an increasingly popular option for business owners. It allows you to manage insurance costs while providing health benefits that attract and retain a qualified workforce.

Switching to an HDHP can help you reduce the amount of money you spend on health insurance premiums for your employees. An HDHP is an alternative form of health insurance where plan holders pay lower premiums in exchange for a higher deductible.

In return, you can pass on some of that savings to your employees by contributing to their HSA. A Health Savings Account (HSA) is an account to help your employees pay for qualified medical expenses not covered by their insurance plan. HVFCU can provide your employees with an HSA Checking Account and free HSA Visa® Debit Card. Employees can use this HSA Checking Account to pay for qualifying medical expenses.

HSA contributions can be funded by the employee, the employer, or both. As an employer, you aren’t required to make a contribution to your employees’ HSA, however, any payments you make are tax deductible. Some firms wait until the end of the fiscal year, making contributions to employees’ HSAs to reduce taxable income. A company with 15 employees may save 40% over a traditional policy if they make the maximum contribution.
