Searching for QSEHRA providers? Read this!

If you’re looking for help choosing QSEHRA providers, you’ve come to the right place. The Qualified Small Employer HRA helps small businesses afford benefits for their teams, but remaining compliant with all the regulations and rules should be top of mind. 

With tax-free reimbursements, business owners with less than 50 employees save on benefits while employees get to choose the plan that works best for them. Because the rules surrounding HRAs tend to change, they should be administered by a third-party who will make sure you are compliant, and that all your i’s are dotted and your t’s are crossed. Here’s what you should be looking for in a QSEHRA administrator

QSEHRA providers keep you in line

All HRAs are subject to several laws and legal requirements that you won't want to overlook. It’s important to know about compliance and how to avoid penalties. A good HRA administration tool will:

Handle compliance, notifications, and reporting.

Support your employees

  • Provide helpful educational material to communicate to your employees the benefits of their new HRA and how to get the most out of it
  • Support employees while they shop for an individual health insurance plan to use with their QSEHRA
  • Robust onboarding process
  • Answer questions along the way 
  • Easy platform to request reimbursements (like simply snapping a picture and uploading on phone)

Support business owners

  • Easy and quick online signup process 
  • A customized admin portal to review and approve HRA documents, view monthly reimbursement reports, add/remove employees, manage subscriptions, update payment information, and see overview information about HRAs.

Why you need QSEHRA providers

Many small business owners ask if they can administer a QSEHRA themselves. Our best advice? Don't even think about it. When dealing with health insurance and employees' health, privacy is a big deal. There's the HIPAA Privacy Rule, which is another layer of protection for employees' private health information. It's also time consuming for business owners to keep up with the medical receipts, maintain all the health information in a secure way, and handle the paperwork that comes with it.
