How to Make the Most of Your Healthcare Benefits through the use of Tax-Favored Benefit Accounts
Reese Feuerman, the Chief Financial Officer at ConnectYourCare, a leading provider of consumer-directed health care account solutions joins eHealth Radio and the Health Care & Health News Channels.
Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Reese Feuerman discuss the following:
I understand ConnectYourCare recently conducted a survey of more than 14,000 employees and 250 employers. In that survey you asked consumers what they are doing to try to offset the high costs of health insurance. What was their response?
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) are another widely-used method of paying for healthcare needs. Did the survey reveal any trends when it comes to FSAs?
Any other surprising findings that came out of the survey?
I have an article here that just ran in BenefitsPro on something called the Healthcare Stack. Can you explain what this is to our listeners and what they need to know?
In your last response you mentioned that the Trump Administration might increase HSA contributions. Obviously there is a lot of uncertainty in the healthcare and benefits space right now, for both employers and consumers – and understandably, it's hard to make decisions when so much is up in the air. But, what should listeners be doing right now?
