Workers with health savings accounts and health reimbursement accounts are getting a little help from their employers.
So much, in fact, that the percentage of employers contributing to their employees’ health accounts reached its highest level in years, according to the Employee Benefit Research Institute.
Nearly three-quarters (71 percent) of workers with a HSA or an HRA reported that their employers contributed to the account in 2013, the highest level since EBRI began surveying health account holders in 2005.
That, and other findings about health accounts, comes from the latest annual EBRI/Greenwald & Associates Consumer Engagement in Health Care Survey.
Contribution amounts from workers and employers — though still fairly constant — took a slight hit in the last year.
