Funded by the employer, a HRA sets aside a specific amount of pre-tax dollars for employees to pay for health care expenses and must be established for each covered employee.

Funds available are applied toward any deductible or coinsurance the employee may owe for covered medical services.

Office visit and prescription drug copays are not reimbursable from the HRA.

Available only in the Preferred-Care network.
