Employers can offer HRAs integrated with individual coverage

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

The administration has finalized a set of rules enabling employers to use health reimbursement arrangements to reimburse employees for the purchase individual insurance coverage, including coverage on an Affordable Care Act Exchange. The rules also allow "excepted benefit HRAs," which would not have to be integrated with any coverage. The rules generally apply for plan years starting on or after January 1, 2020.
