Health Reimbursement Arrangement - for those employers that don’t meet the underwriting guidelines, or have higher than expected premiums, you can now offer your employees the ability to use tax-advantaged account dollars to pay for individual healthcare premiums.
Consumer Directed Spending Accounts
Health Savings Account (HSA) – an HSA is a tax-advantaged personal savings account that can be used to pay for medical, dental, vision and other qualified expenses now or later in the employee’s life.
Health Care FSA – A flexible spending account (FSA) is an employer-sponsored benefit account that allows employees the opportunity to set aside pre-tax funds to help pay for eligible healthcare expenses.
Dependent Care FSA gives your employees the ability to pay for work-related dependent care expenses with pre-tax dollars. DCA’s may provide your employee more tax advantages than the federal income credit.
Limited-Purpose FSA – For employees who are actively contributing to an HSA account, a Limited-Purpose FSA allows for employees to maximize their health care dollars. A Limited Purpose FSA can be used for immediate dental and vision expenses, that HAS dollars can be saved for future medical expenses.

Everyone deserves a better tomorrow, and insuring against potential hardships is a great start! NPMA is providing a hospital indemnity plan to its employer groups to allow members to enroll and protect their families against unexpected hospital costs. Hospital indemnity insurance pays an amount for each day the insured is hospitalized, up to a specific maximum limit. Because the benefits are paid to the insured directly, the insured can use them to help pay for out-of-pocket expenses, such as deductibles and copay costs that would be hard to pay due to missed work. Hospital Select II features benefits for full-time, part-time, hourly, and seasonal workers. There is no coinsurance, copays, or waiting period or deductible.
NPMA offers Cancer-only indemnity insurance through Transamerica Life Insurance company. Good medical insurance helps, but is it enough? While some individuals diagnosed with cancer have meaningful and adequate health insurance to pay for most of the cost of treatment, privately insured workers face the prospect of crippling out-of-pocket costs. For your employees that are 18 years old or older, they can purchase this valuable supplemental benefit, and can also chose to insure their eligible family members. This allows your employees to not only have more resources to cope with any future diagnosis of cancer, but also wellness benefits to help detect cancer early.
Vision Benefits through Metlife
Vision benefits help keep employees’ eyes healthy — but there’s more to them than meets the eye. In fact, many people are surprised to learn that good eye care can be a powerful way to prevent or diagnose overall health issues — like diabetes, hypertension, and more. Connecting the dots between vision and overall health can help employees see the full value of the benefits you offer.
