EBC HRA plan designs come in many shapes and sizes, but the variations stem from key choices by the employer – choices that determine how and when the plan reimburses participants’ medical claims.
At the core of EBC HRA plan design are tiers -- from one to four. Tiers are like dividers that break participants’ EBC HRA coverage into smaller segments, with each segment reimbursing their medical expenses at a different level. Whenever a participant incurs enough medical expenses to reach a new tier, their coverage changes accordingly.
The two-tier EBC HRA is a good way to illustrate the idea.
Two-tier EBC HRA
When an EBC HRA has two tiers, each tier reimburses participants’ claims at a different percent. Two-tier plans are one of the most common EBC HRA plan designs.
This sample EBC HRA begins reimbursing participants’ expenses once they have incurred $500 worth of eligible medical expenses. At that time, Tier 2 begins and reimburses 100% of participants’ next $2,000 in eligible medical expenses.
The Versatility of EBC HRA Plan Design
There’s a lot more the EBC HRA can do, including three and four tiers, working alongside a Health Savings Account (HSA) and the Benny
Benefits Card, and combining multiple expense types under a global maximum benefit.
We can enhance the BESTflex Plan with one of many optional features. We work with employers to determine which options are right for their plan.
