Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) May 25, 2006
4myBenefits, Inc. a leading vendor of online benefits communications services, today announced it has signed an agreement to rollout a program with First Horizon Msaver, Inc., one of the nation’s top administrators of Health Savings Accounts (HSA) offering health care financial services and solutions to health plans, employers, self-funded employers, banks, and insurance brokers and consultants throughout the U.S.
Under the terms of the agreement, employees who use the 4myBenefits online enrollment service and select an HSA-qualified high deductible health plan option will be seamlessly transferred to First Horizon Msaver where they can open and initially fund an HSA account.
The Medicare Act of 2003 expanded the health benefits opportunities available to consumers by authorizing the use of HSAs. Contributions made to the HSA are either tax-deductible or pre-tax, if contributed through cafeteria plan. Funds can be used to pay for routine health care such as office visits, prescription drugs, and lab tests. Unused funds can roll over each year providing a savings vehicle for future healthcare costs.
Justin Peter, Vice President of Marketing at 4mybenefits commented, “By partnering with First Horizon Msaver, we have the ability to offer our clients a quality HSA and a fully integrated high deductible enrollment experience. Not only can they enroll electronically in a high deductible health plan, but they can also open their HSA account in the same online session. This eliminates many of the problems and follow-up issues created with the standard two-step enrollment process. In a second phase of the program, employers will gain access to a funding portal which simplifies and accelerates the process of depositing employee and/or employer contributions into individual employee First Horizon HSA accounts.
