Overview

Simplifying and understanding health care in America.

In 2004, Congress created Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) with the intention of putting the brakes on runaway health care costs. The concept was simple: Get people to start thinking about health care expenses the same way they think about other goods and services they buy. But what started as simple idea has proven to be difficult for many to understand and implement. This book simplifies HSAs and their corresponding HDHPs for business owners and managers alike.

• Covers how HSAs and HDHPs work, the pros and cons of them, how to install them, strategies for getting the most out of them, and how paychecks and taxes are affected
• U.S. health care costs were nearly $1.7 trillion in 2003.
• According to a national survey, 81% of large and 78% of small companies are considering implementing HSAs by 2006
