HSA-compatible health plans – a key to retaining clients
As of January 2012, over 13.5 million people were covered by HSA-compatible high-deductible health plans (HSA-compatible health plans), an increase of 23 percent over the prior year.1
 
HSA-compatible health plans are high-deductible health plans with lower rates and higher deductibles, and can be used with an HSA to obtain tax advantages.
 
And with a variety of rates, plans and deductibles to choose from, Blue Shield's HSA-compatible health plan portfolio has the coverage your clients want at rates lower than most other Blue Shield PPO plans.

HSA-compatible health plans are right for clients who:
  • Are interested in reducing their healthcare coverage rates
  • Want comprehensive coverage, but looking for more affordable coverage
  • Are individuals leaving a group plan
  • Are an individual wanting greater control over their healthcare spending or an employer wanting to put more control into their employees' hands
 
Top reasons HSA-compatible health plans are good for your clients:
  • Lower rates
  • Tax advantages – provides individuals and employees the option to open tax advantaged Health Savings Account (HSA)2 to pay for qualified medical, dental and vision care expenses and provides employers with potential tax deductions for any HSA contributions
  • Security – Together, an HSA and HSA-compatible health plan offers your clients (and the employees of your clients) piece of mind by limiting their out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Access – members to some of the largest PPO provider networks in California
 
We are sure your clients will see the benefits just as many others have, and will recognize that these plans are a great fit for their budget.

2. Although most consumers who enroll in an HSA-compatible health plan are eligible to open an HSA, members should consult with a financial adviser to determine if an HSA/HDHP is a good financial fit for them. Blue Shield does not offer tax advice or HSAs. HSAs are offered through financial institutions. For more information about HSAs, eligibility and the law’s current provisions, consumers should ask their financial or tax adviser. HSA plan features may vary by institution and may be subject to change by those institutions.
