Select PPO plans give employees access to the same high-quality providers as a PPO, but usually the network is smaller. The monthly premiums and deductible options offer greater value than the standard PPO. No PCP is needed and no referrals for other in-network doctors are required.

Help Employees Save More With a Group Health Expense Account

Anthem has a variety of flexible spending and health account options in California to fit your small or large business needs. Our seamless account management tools help make health spending decisions easier.

  • Health Savings Account (HSA)
  • Health Reimbursement Account (HRA)
  • Health Incentive Account (HIA)
  • Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
Health Savings Account (HSA)

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax-deductible savings account that is owned and funded by the employee to help save for – and cover – qualified health care expenses and prescriptions. Like a bank account, HSA funds remain with the member, but can only be spent on health care expenses. Anthem can pair an HSA with an HDHP or CDHP to help cover out-of-pocket medical expenses, including prescription drugs. Like the HRA, employers can add funds to an HSA as a rewards program for employees who engage in healthy lifestyle choices.

Health Reimbursement Account (HRA)

A Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) is an employer-funded health savings account. Anthem can pair an HRA with a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) or Consumer-Driven Health Plan (CDHP) to help employees pay for covered costs. CDHPs often require employees to pay the deductible first, before the HRA account will reimburse additional health care costs. Employers can also add funds to the HRA to establish a rewards program for employees who engage in healthy lifestyle choices.

Health Incentive Account (HIA)

Health incentive accounts (HIA) are an effective large group plan strategy for addressing California’s rising health care costs while improving the health and productivity of employees. A consumer-driven program, employees earn money for their HIA by completing specific healthy behaviors and care engagement activities, then can use their HIA earnings to help pay for covered medical expenses and prescriptions. With an Anthem HIA, unused funds rollover year-to-year.

Flexible Spending Account (FSA)

A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is an arrangement that employees set up with their employers, allowing them to set aside pre- tax money to pay various kinds of expenses, like co-insurance or child care, for example. An FSA can be paired with any plan. Anthem can set up an FSA that is directly integrated with medical claims processing, so employees are automatically reimbursed for eligible out-of-pocket expenses.
