What is an Health Reimbursement Arrangement? (HRA) A fund that is used towards your In-Network Deductible. Is used for “qualified” out-of-pocket medical expenses for yourself, spouse and dependent(s). Helps reduce your out-of-pocket maximum expenses. Is excluded from your gross income; in other words, the reimbursements are tax-free.
What Is An Explanation of Benefits (EOB)? An Explanation of Benefits (EOB) explains how your medical claims are processed. You will receive an EOB from Anthem or you may access a copy online. An EOB is not a billing statement. 15
