HSAs, FSA, HRAs, and Voluntary Insurance Programs: ERISA vs. Non-ERISA Compliance

Strafford

Jan. 19, 2022
Recorded Online
Webcast

This CLE video webinar will provide ERISA counsel with a review of the advantages and legal risks of health savings accounts (HSAs), flexible savings accounts (FSAs), health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs), and voluntary insurance programs for both employers and employees, and the impact on them of various COVID legislative and regulatory changes. The program will discuss ERISA compliance requirements for FSAs and HRAs, and how to structure HSAs to avoid falling under the purview of ERISA. They will also discuss the liabilities for employers if their HSA plans are subject to ERISA due to mistakes in plan structure.

Description

In an era of high deductible healthcare plans and increasing premiums and co-payments, employers are increasingly adopting arrangements to help employees with healthcare costs and to remain competitive in recruiting and retaining employees.

For employers with high deductible plans, HSAs offer employees the ability to make pre-tax contributions to pay healthcare expenses and accrue tax-free earnings on the amounts they contribute. Voluntary insurance programs allow employers to provide employees with access to insurance programs that the employer does not sponsor or contribute. Voluntary insurance programs and HSAs are not welfare benefit plans subject to ERISA, assuming the employer limits its involvement consistent with Department of Labor rules.

FSAs and HRAs are employee welfare benefit plans that must comply with ERISA requirements and other laws like HIPAA.

Listen as our authoritative panel of ERISA attorneys guides you through the benefits of HSAs, FSAs, HRAs, and voluntary insurance programs for employers and employees. The panel will discuss ERISA compliance requirements for FSAs and HRAs and how to structure HSAs to avoid falling under the purview of ERISA.
