    Day 2 - November 19, 2020

    Putting Money to Good Use? Cafeteria Plans And Account-Based Plans | 1:00-2:30 PM ET |
    Employers are constantly evaluating different methods for funding employee health and welfare benefits, whether it be employer contributions or employee contributions to a Code Section 125 cafeteria plan. This session will review recent changes and guidance regarding account-based plans such as health, limited purpose and dependent care flexible savings accounts; health savings accounts (HSAs); and, health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs), including ICHRAs and EBHRAs. The panel will also discuss potential pitfalls or “foot faults” in administering these programs within the larger regulatory framework. Lastly, presenters will peer into their crystal balls and offer some thoughts on the evolution of account based-plans and the defined contribution model generally.
