New regulations expand personalized benefits with more HRA options

By Caitlin Bronson | October 25, 2018

The Departments of the Treasury, Labor, and Health and Human Services proposed regulations this week that would significantly expand personalized health benefits for U.S. businesses.

The proposals, issued Tuesday, October 23, were a response to an executive order from President Donald Trump. That order instructed the Departments to increase the availability and usability of health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs)—especially those offered in conjunction with non-group insurance.

If enacted, the regulations would create two new HRAs: something we’re calling the individual-integrated HRA, and the smaller, excepted benefit HRA.
