How High Deductible Health Plans Can Set Employees Up for Financial Success
A common fear among employees can be that High Deductible Health Plans (HDHPs) expose them to too much risk. However, this misconception misses the near-certain long-term losses that come with not choosing a HDHP that includes an HSA. What employees are often missing is a full knowledge of the long-term financial impacts and risks associated with enrolling in an HDHP paired with HSA savings strategy, compared to a more traditional, low deductible PPO option. Employer contributions to HSAs can also set employees up for financial success and retirement readiness.
Join this complimentary webcast to discover how HSA-eligible plans are better for employees in the long run and can help improve their financial health. Topics discussed will include:
The short term risks that scare employees away from an HSA plan
The long term benefits that make HSAs a no-brainer
Ways to overcome employees’ apprehension towards HSAs to get them to enroll and contribute
