This session will review the advantages of High Deductible Health Plans (HDHP) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA). We will discuss the role HSA plays in controlling and reducing health care costs as well as the corporate benefit of employee engagement in health care spending decisions.

This session will review:

  • How HDHPs and HSAs work.

  • The role HSAs play in getting employees ready to retire and how to best use health savings accounts and retirement plans.
