Elk Grove, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2009
benefitsCONNECT® (http://www.benefitsCONNECT.net) announced today that it added HSA Bank as a Health Savings Account (HSA) administrator option in its web-based benefits enrollment and administration system. The partnership allows employees to enroll in an HSA-compatible health plan and HSA with HSA Bank at the same time.
"HSA Bank has maintained a leadership position in the HSA market since 1997 by offering a complete HSA product and exceptional service," said Troy Underwood, president of benefitsCONNECT®. "We believe that HSA Bank's leadership, product, and service combined with the benefitsCONNECT® integrated enrollment technology will give agents and brokers a significant competitive advantage in the marketplace."
benefitsCONNECT® automates and simplifies online benefits enrollment and administration, increasing efficiency through a sophisticated, EDI-enabled Software as a Service (SaaS) platform. In addition, benefits communication tools help employers communicate the value of their benefit offerings and increase overall company satisfaction.
"benefitsCONNECT® allows employers to administer their benefits package through a single online portal," said Itamar Romanini, senior vice president of business development for HSA Bank. "We believe the convenience of the benefitsCONNECT® platform will be useful to many mid-sized employers that currently administer their benefits manually or through multiple systems."
HSAs are a cost-effective solution that can reduce the cost of health care through lower premiums and fewer claims. Individuals can contribute and grow their money in an HSA on a tax-free basis. Plus, the funds withdrawn from the HSA for eligible medical expenses are not taxable and leftover funds can be carried forward into the next year or saved for retirement.
