In simpler times, health reimbursement arrangements, or HRAs, were furry, fluffy, friendly creatures in the benefits forest. But now …  not so much. They’re multiplying like crazy, and growing fangs and claws. In this episode, Ed and Scott track the current species of HRAs, in all their varieties.

  • How do the endlessly evolving types of HRAs differ from each other?
  • What kind of HRAs can an employer offer, and to whom, without getting bitten?
  • What do Tesla sedans have to do with HRAs? (Ed is slow on the take-up, and still not clear.)
  • Can an employer offer young (tan) Scott a group plan and old (probably dying) Ed an HRA and a one-way ticket to Medicare?
  • What advantages or “free passes” from complex ACA regulation do some of the new HRAs offer employers?
