HSAs are a powerful compensation tool but unless employees fully understand HSAs and their benefits, the tool is often underutilized. 

The award for the most misunderstood and underutilized healthcare benefit goes to: the health savings account (HSA).

It is time to tell the real story about these accounts in a way that employees can understand.

Learning Objectives:

  • Why it’s up to employers to help employees to improve their financial literacy about HSAs.
  • Five common misconceptions about HSAs and concrete ways (and some scripts) to dispel them.
  • Tips to ease the healthcare decision-making process for employees and for building their health insurance literacy.
