Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRA) may work in conjunction with any insurance plan. It can be designed to cover specific health expenses, or insurance plan cost-sharing, such as co-pays, coinsurance or a portion of the deductible on a High Deductible Health Plan. HRAs are funded and owned solely by the employer and are utilized for the benefit of employees to cover the cost of medical expenses chosen by you. An employer’s exposure to Federal and State taxes, including Social Security and Medicare taxes can be reduced by an HRA, and your contributions may qualify as a fully deductible business expense. HRAs may allow employees to rollover unused funds through consecutive benefit years, or may be designed to allow unused funds to be rolled back to the employer. BenefitsPlus has partnered with Datapath to provide direct access to HRA funds through the use of the MySource Debit card system, making the claims process easy for your employees.

We look forward to working with TPS Group next year
As another year ends, I want to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to you and TPS Group for assigning us Krista Blier. Krista provides exceptional customer service and has been a major asset to me and Lynch, Traub, Keefe & Errante, P.C. She is extremely knowledgeable and always accessible. Always on top of the RMD’s, giving me an explanation on form 5500-SF to present to Mr. Keefe & keeping us updated with any account changes as well as specifics. It is a relief knowing I have full faith in Krista and can turn a blind eye to our account. I cannot tell you how many vendors/brokers I have to stay on top of and babysit to make sure our deadlines are met and to perform their job duties. Krista is a pleasure to work with and we look forward to working with her and TPS Group next year.

TPS filled in the gaps within our small HR department
Working with Kim and her talented team helped us fill in the gaps within our small HR department. I strongly recommend TPS for HR tasks that don’t warrant hiring a full-time team. Thanks again Kim!
