Have You Thought About Switching to the High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)?
Don’t let the words “high deductible” scare you. This is a good time to understand how much you use the health plan — and consider when the last time was that you met your deductible. There are advantages of enrolling in the plan, including the Health Savings Account (HSA). This account is yours and rolls over year-to-year. One major perk with the HSA — Freese and Nichols provides you with money every year to help you cover your deductible.
|COMPANY CONTRIBUTION TO YOUR HSA|
|Employee + Spouse||$800|
|Employee + Child(ren)||$800|
|Employee + Family||$1,100|
