What is a QSEHRA

What is a QSEHRA?

A QSEHRA, pronounced Q-sarah, stands for Qualified Small Employer Health Reimbursement Arrangement.

QSEHRA, also known as a small business HRA for employers with fewer than 50 employees is an employer-funded, tax-free health benefit used to reimburse employees for personal health care expenses.

How does it work?

The employer designates which reimbursable expenses will be approved. The employer will then select one or multiple job classes and set a contribution amount per class. Once the terms of the plan are chosen a per employee per month amount of money will be set aside. Then after an employee pays for a designated reimbursable expense, they can submit for reimbursement.

How does QSEHRA work for employers?

As a small employer, you gain control over your contributions to employee healthcare. By defining reimbursable expenses and setting contribution amounts per job class, it allows you to manage healthcare benefits effectively. Whether it’s inquiring about the QSEHRA maximum for 2024 or exploring QSEHRA limits, understanding these aspects is vital for effective management.
