Breakout Session II

Health Savings Accounts: Getting Beyond Negative Perceptions. – Thomas F. Flynn, CLU, ChFC, President & CEO, Jaeger & Flynn Assoc., Inc.

Health Savings Accounts have been around since 2003. According to research firm Devenir, HSAs have grown to an estimated $42.7 billion in assets and 21 million accounts as of June 30, 2017, and are projected to exceed $60 billion in nearly 30 million accounts by the end of 2019. When we drill down into examining the tax-free benefits, the extent to which they promote healthcare consumerism, etc., they seem like a no-brainer! They can be good for your business, good for your employees, and great for your execs!! Why then do we still run into so much negativity and misperceptions so often whenever we mention high deductible health plans and health savings accounts here in upstate New York? This session, intended for businesses of all sizes, will review HSA basics, how HSA positives easily outweigh the negatives, and how to move beyond the negative perceptions to understanding and appreciation.
