Health Reimbursement Account
Non-contractual employees check with your employer to see if the HRA Plan will be offered to you.
Your HRA is a reimbursement account offered by your employer as part of your benefits package. Your employer sets up and funds the account to reimburse you for your eligible out-of-pocket health care expenses. You can use your HRA funds throughout the coverage period to pay for eligible HRA expenses.
Each plan year your employer contributes a specified amount to your HRA — you cannot make an additional contribution. You are not taxed on the value of your HRA or the reimbursements you receive from the account. Note: Expenses reimbursed under your HRA may not be used to claim any federal income tax deduction or credit.
