    How HSAs and HRAs Work

    The health savings account (HSA) gives employees ownership of a tax-exempt savings account they can use to contribute pre-tax dollars to pay for covered health care costs.1 The health reimbursement account (HRA) is employer-funded and, combined with a health plan, helps employees pay for covered health care costs.

    HSA Plan Features

    • Employee-owned account. The employee keeps rollover of all unused funds.
    • Qualified high-deductible plans are eligible.
    • Premiums for these plans are typically lower than traditional medical plans.
    • Contributions can be made by the employer and the employee, up to the IRS limit each year.
    • Preventive prescription drugs can be covered before employees meet their deductible.
    • Optional Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account (FSA). his gives your employees the freedom to enroll in an HSA while saving additional pre-tax dollars in a FSA to help pay for eligible vision and dental expenses.

    HRA Plan Features

    • Employer-owned account. The employer chooses limits on remaining HRA dollars that roll over to future plan years.
    • Dollars remain with employer if employee leaves, or they are unspent at end of year.
    • Most health plans are eligible. Employers choose the underlying medical plan.
    • Contributions are made by the employer. Employers choose how much to contribute.
    • Automatic claim forwarding option to pay health care providers directly from the HRA.

    About Consumer-Driven Health Plans

    Consumer-Driven Health Plans (CDHPs) give employers the flexibility to combine a qualifying medical plan with either an HSA or HRA. Our CDHPs are designed to deliver savings for clients, without shifting costs to customers. Employers can choose to offer one or both Cigna HealthcareSM* CDHP plans.

    Value of Integrating Cigna Healthcare HSA and HRA Plans

    When bundled with a Cigna Healthcare medical plan, our HSA and HRA plans offer an integrated experience for employers and employees. This makes it easy to implement and simple to maintain. Compare the benefits of pairing Cigna Healthcare medical plans with Cigna Healthcare HSA and/or HRA plans vs. pairing Cigna Healthcare medical plans with a third-party HSA and/or HRA vendor.
