We want to concentrate attention on the areas of the new law that could impact HSAs
Winnetka, IL (PRWEB) September 23, 2010
HSA Resources, one of the nation’s leading HSA providers, just released its new webinar: The Impact of Health Reform on HSAs. This webinar is designed for the professional that wants the details on how the new law impacts Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). The new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) only includes the acronym HSA six times and the law and only makes two direct changes to HSAs: (1) eliminating over-the-counter drugs as an eligible medical expense, and (2) increasing the penalty for non-eligible distributions from 10% to 20%. This webinar goes beyond these relatively minor changes and focuses on seven indirect changes that could dramatically impact HSAs and potentially even eliminate them.
“We believe in HSAs and want to concentrate attention to areas of the new law that could impact HSAs,” said Whitney Johnson, cofounder of HSA Resources and leader of the webinar. “A lot of the detail of the law is left to the regulators to write and we need to ensure these regulations are written such that HSAs survive.”
The forty-five minute webinar details how the following seven reforms could impact HSAs.
- Preventive Care Requirements
- Medical Loss Ratios
- Essential Benefits
- Maximum Deductibles for Small Groups
- Insurance Exchanges and Actuarial Value Requirements
- Maximum Out-of-Pocket Costs
- Cadillac Tax
