HSA vs HRA - The DifferencesWhat is an HSA?

An HSA is a high-deductible "HSA qualified" insurance policy combined with an IRA-type savings account.  Contributions up to the annual maximum ($4,150 individual / $8,300 family in 2024 plus $1,000 catch up contributions for age 55+), interest earned on the account balance, and withdrawals for qualified medical expenses are all tax free.  Health Savings Accounts will change the way millions meet their health care needs because they are designed to help individuals save for qualified medical and retiree health expenses on a tax-advantaged basis.

What is an HRA?

An HRA consists of funds set aside by an employer in any amount to reimburse employees for qualified medical expenses and premiums.  An HRA is commonly linked to a high deductible health plan that allows the employee to better control their medical spending.   Employers qualify for preferential tax treatment of funds placed in an HRA.  Unused funds may or may not be rolled over to the next year and are not portable if an employee terminates employment.
