26 Employer Strategies

27 EMPLOYER STRATEGIES To Help Sick & Low Paid Employees o HSA funding – amount & timing o HRA funding – post-deductible o Cafeteria plan benefits FSAs, wellness programs, disease management programs, supplemental insurance o Support – education & communication

28 EMPLOYER STRATEGIES Don’t Undersell the HDHP o Most employees assume HDHPs offer inferior coverage Premium savings o HSA funding can actually lead to a richer plan than before (i.e., higher actuarial value) “Bronze” HDHP (AV = 62.0%)  AV with $500 contribution = 68.0%  AV with $1,000 contribution = 73.6%  AV with $2,000 contribution = 82.4%

29 EMPLOYER STRATEGIES To Help Young Employees Communicate the power of compound interest

30 EMPLOYER STRATEGIES Measure Engagement What data can help measure “engagement?” How many employees never opened their HSA? How many employees are not contributing any personal money to their HSA? How many employees are spending every dollar contributed (i.e., minimal or zero balance)? Are average balances  or  ? Does changing the employer contribution amount or timing affect employee behavior?

31 EMPLOYER STRATEGIES Make Data Work for You o The more employers know about their employees, the more they can: Improve employee well-being Reduce costs Generate positive experience o Meaningful, usable data can help employers: Understand employee “engagement” Drive or align plan strategies o If your HSA administrator cannot provide good data, it might be time to switch

32 EMPLOYER STRATEGIES Leverage Personalization

33 Employee Strategies

34 EMPLOYEE STRATEGIES How to Fund the HSA o Many people can contribute more than their out-of-pocket risk o Take advantage of employer matching contributions, if offered o Pay attention to employer incentives that may increase contributions o Don’t forget to factor in tax savings Making contributions via payroll deduction is best o If uncertain how much to contribute, use the “look back” method o Ask questions – NEVER assume!
