Health Reimbursement Account

Home > Insurance Policies > Group > HRA
HRAs, also known as a Health Reimbursement Arrangement, are a type of spending account that is funded solely by the employer, reimburses individuals for medical care expenses, and provides reimbursements up to a dollar value, which can be carried forward.

The IRS allows an HRA to reimburse eligible medical expenses (including over-the-counter items such as insulin, medical equipment and supplies) of an employee, his or her spouse, and qualified dependents.

Note: Employers are not required to allow all expenses be reimbursed from the HRA – they are permitted to design a plan that limits reimbursement to only certain items.
