Products & Services

Health Savings Account (HSA) is like a medical IRA. Money can be used for medical expenses today or saved for the future. The money in the HSA account can be used for any “qualified medical expense” permitted under Federal law, including dental and vision care. There are many advantages to putting money into health savings accounts, including favorable tax treatment.

Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs) are defined contribution plans that employers own and control for the benefit of their employees. HRAs are 100% employer funded and represent an employer’s commitment to pay for certain healthcare expenses for their employees. Employers set the coverage “rules” for HRAs, but they are governed by Section 105(H) of the IRS Code. HRAs are considered group health plans and are subject to COBRA, ERISA, and HIPAA regulations.

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) commonly called  Flexible Benefit Plans, give employers and employees a great way to pay for healthcare costs and realize substantial tax savings. Through payroll deduction, employees purchase “qualified benefits” that may not be included in their gross income. The tax-advantaged money set aside in FSAs can be used to pay for qualified medical expenses, dependent care, and transportation costs.

Sterling offers:

• Healthcare FSAs.
• Limited Purpose or Post Deductible FSAs to coordinate Healthcare FSAs with other plans.
• Dependent Care FSAs.
• Transit and parking benefits.

Section 125 Premium Only Plan (POP), allows employees to increase take-home pay and improve benefits. A POP allows employees to pay their portion of eligible employer-sponsored premiums and benefits – such as health, dental, vision, and health savings account (HSA) contributions with pre-tax dollars.

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) of 1985 requires employers of 20 or more full-time equivalent employees to offer their employees the opportunity to continue their group healthcare coverage under the employer’s plan, if the coverage would end due to employee termination, layoff, or certain other employment status changes (referred to as “qualifying events”). This includes any event that changes the employee’s eligibility for benefits except gross negligence. The continuation of coverage applies to surviving spouses, ex-spouses, and dependents of employees as well.
