Wells Fargo works with more than 10,000 employer groups to help them build, grow, and maintain their HSA programs. Based on 10 years of experience and what’s worked for our clients, we have developed a set of best practices for HSA program success1.
These best practices fall into three categories: your HSA-compatible health plan design, your HSA program design, and your communication plan with your employees. The most attractive and successful programs focus on all three areas. Watch our recent webcast, Best Practices for an Optimal HSA Program, for more details, including a customer case study.
Using Wells Fargo best practices could potentially save you millions
The example below shows two clients with first-year HSA programs in 2013. Each client had several thousand benefit-eligible employees. Client A achieved 49% enrollment in the HSA-compatible health plan in year one—versus just 3% enrollment for Client B—for a total savings of more than $3.5 million.
|Client A||Client B|
|First year enrollment in HSA-compatible health plan||49%||3%|
|Average premium savings per employee||$2,383||$1,5502|
|Total savings in 2013||$3,500,000||$302,250|
|That’s an additional $3.2 million in savings when implementing best practices for an optimal HSA program.3|
We are here to help you make the most of your HSA program
