Bringing together health and financial well-being

Medical costs continue to rise steadily year after year. At the same time, COVID-19 presents new economic challenges and cost uncertainties.

The Anthem Spending Accounts portfolio

With Anthem Spending Accounts, you can choose from five benefit or account types to offer: a health savings account (HSA), a health reimbursement account (HRA), healthcare and limited-purpose flexible spending accounts (FSAs), a dependent care FSA, and commuter benefits. Product availability varies by group size. Visit the IRS website or talk to your Anthem Sales representative for more information on determining group size.

The basics

Available to small group, large group, and national employers.

If there is not enough money in the account, employees pay out of pocket until they meet their deductibles. They can later reimburse themselves as funds become available.

Employees can receive a debit card to pay for qualified medical expenses.

Employees can contribute tax-free money to the HSA. As the employer, you may also add money to the account.

Any funds left in the account each year are carried over to the following year and remain with the employee who owns them.

Employees can invest their HSA funds once their HSA balance exceeds $1,000. The interest they earn is tax-free.
