HRA Without Group Health Insurance

By on | No Comments

Question: Can an employer set up an hra with no group health insurance?

Answer: Yes. Companies that want to offer health benefits, but cannot offer group health insurance due to high cost or participation requirements can offer a defined contribution health plan in which they make available monthly contributions that employees can choose how to spend. Employees can use their monthly contribution amount to reimburse their individual health insurance costs and eligible medical expenses. This is just one of many HRA design options.
