SmarterHSA Blog: Start with the Basics
With high deductible health plan (HDHP) election at an all-time high, it’s critical that your employees know how to make best use of an H.S.A. How do you educate them? It’s best to do so in a series of communications, both in-person and electronically.
Giving employees a base knowledge of the basics is important, regardless of how long a HDHP/H.S.A. program has been offered to them at your organization. We have seen a lot of confusion about the basics of an H.S.A. over the past couple of open enrollments, so it’s important to not take the basics for granted.

I will go into more detail about these items, but this is a good reminder to start with the basics. Keeping the message simple and concise has worked for us when educating employees.
As always, your feedback and comments are appreciated.
