Health insurance companies win big profits from consumers

According to the NAIC Health Insurance Report, in 2020, U.S. health insurers earned approximately $816.2 billion in net premiums. Compared to 2019, there was a 11% increase in premium spending from U.S. consumers.

With premium prices on the rise, it can be hard to budget for a group health insurance plan. However, there are now more options for small to medium sized businesses that can’t afford a group health insurance plan. Health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs) are one of those options.

Why health reimbursement arrangements are a better option for small employers

An HRA is a health benefit used to reimburse employees, tax-free, for out-of-pocket medical expenses and health insurance premiums. Employers are able to manage their budget by setting an allowance and give their employees more flexibility and freedom over their health benefit to best suit their needs.

PeopleKeep offers an HRA administration software for businesses of all sizes looking to administer their HRA benefits quickly and easily. It enables employers to provide a simple, effective solution to manage the benefit while we focus on the details like documentation review and compliance.

If you're looking for an alternative to expensive group health insurance policies, an HRA enables your employees to choose a policy that best fits their needs. Below are three types of HRAs that PeopleKeep offers that might be right for you.
