It’s time for some good news. We don’t need a fancy lead-in, so let’s just get to it…

The CARES Act clarifies that a $0-visit-fee telehealth service is now valid alongside an HSA-qualified plan.

This has been a much-debated question in recent years, as it had not been previously codified into law or specifically allowed or disallowed by regulators. In fact, it’s one of the most-common questions we get from brokers and employers.

For 10 years, we’ve run freshbenies as a remote workplace. It doesn’t mean we didn’t get together consistently and see each other’s faces. It does mean it’s rare that any of us drove in rush-hour traffic.

What important healthcare changes were part of the discussion at this year’s NAHU Capitol Conference

It wasn’t all about “Medicare For All” programs. There are lots of other bills and rulings that will either help or hurt our clients and our free market system. That’s why I joined 700 or so NAHU colleagues in Washington D.C. last week. As a group, we met with virtually every congressperson’s office. 

Curious what our consistent advice was? Here are our top 5 requests for 2020 health reforms…

What should you expect from the healthcare and employee benefits industries in 2020?

I’ve read multiple articles summarizing the decade we just closed. Can you believe we’re almost to the 10-year anniversary of ACA? After combining all the reading with the 20 conferences I attended last year, and hundreds of broker conversations – this gives me a pretty good idea about what to expect in the coming year.

My daughter kept getting ear infections (sometimes double ear infections), and eventually she had to have tubes put into her ears. During this time, I also was really sick. I was able to use Telehealth and get a prescription for my own cold and ear infections.

 

 

 

 

 



 

I loved not having to leave my home to gain treatment. I don’t know what I would have done without it. I wouldn’t have been able to afford treatment for myself and wouldn’t have got medication to help treat my illness. With a sick baby at home, it was also nice to not have to get my child out to visit a doctor’s office. Thank you freshbenies for all the help! You rock! .
