HSA Overview for Brokers and Agents

CareFirst makes HSAs easy for you - and your clients

Health savings accounts (HSAs) are on the rise as an important part of employee benefit packages because they provide a financial cushion to help employees with increasing deductible limits, while keeping costs down for employers. HSAs allow employees to save on medical expenses tax-free while companies save money with reduced payroll taxes – a win-win for both.

Employers save money, time

CareFirst’s HSA plan is easy to implement and offers valuable benefits, including:

  • Extra savings — Not only will employers see reduced payroll taxes, they could also save on their portion of health insurance premiums.
  • Reduced administration — Employees can manage their account from any mobile device and enjoy the convenience of a simple claims and reimbursement process.
  • Enhanced benefits package — Employers are better able to attract and retain employees with a product that helps employees pay for and save for health care now and in the future.
