“Wells Fargo helps business clients meet their objectives by maximizing enrollment in HSA-compatible health plans, which enable them to reduce overall health care expenses,” Elizabeth Ryan, head of Wells Fargo’s Health Benefit Services, said in a statement.
“Our business clients appreciate the active role we take in educating their employees,” she said. “We’re empowering their employees through two key benefits — tax savings up to $25 or more on each $100 in HSA contributions, and the ability to build a safety net for potential retirement medical expenses.”
