Health Savings Account (HSA) for Employers

As an employer, you want your people to maintain a balanced and healthy well-being. At CapEd, we'd like to help you handle the financial aspects of that well-being with an employee Health Savings Account (HSA) Program.

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a savings account used to save money to pay for deductibles, copayments, coinsurance, and other eligible medical expenses. These deposits are tax-free1 as long as the funds are used to pay for eligible medical expenses.

Providing an HSA plan for your employees results in many benefits for both your people and your business.

A Health Savings Account is available to taxpayers who are enrolled in a high-deductible health plan. The funds you contribute to an HSA may not be subject to federal income tax at the time you deposit the funds. What's more, the funds you deposit into your HSA roll over year over year if you don't spend them, so you can save for short-term and long-term medical expenses. Find out about what expenses are elligible.

An HSA (along with an accompanying High Deductible Health Plan) has become a popular way for businesses to boost the bottom line without sacrificing employee wellness. A core part of any competitive benefits package, the HSA delivers tax savings for both you and your employees while helping employees prepare for the high cost of healthcare.

Education is key to driving employee adoption. Lively takes the burden of this off your plate by arming you with ready-to-use Open Enrollment information, a comprehensive "Welcome" email series, and robust self-service resources. That's why employees contribute almost 40% more on the Lively platform than the industry standard.

Our proprietary technology enables us to get your HSA program up and running in weeks, not months. And we are constantly innovating to improve the experience for you and your employees.

We don't believe in nickeling and diming. Other than the monthly administration fee (per enrolled employee per month), there are no additional hidden or mandatory fees for either you or your employees.
