The rules governing Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs), Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), and health flexible spending arrangements (FSAs) have undergone important changes and may experience even more in the near future. The President’s executive order issued on October 12, 2017 called for broadening the HRA rules, there have been repeated calls for higher contribution limits to HSAs, and the health FSA limits change based on the inflation index.
What the federal agencies will do in response to the executive order and any tax legislation that may be passed is uncertain, but additional changes seem likely. Many employers use these vehicles to assist employees with expenses not covered by major medical insurance, and employers that utilize these vehicles will probably face the need to review their health plan offerings and perhaps rethink their health plan design in general.
