Risk Management and Medical Travel Benefits

Changing state laws have made it necessary for some people to travel out of state for medical care and treatment. Medical travel services are considered eligible expenses which means they would be included by the health plan in a Healthcare Flexible Spending Account (HCFSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) as an eligible medical expense. As the need to travel for medical services increases, rising travel costs for these services could financially hinder the individual. Employers are looking for guidance about services, cost limits and distances that should be covered. Join us as we talk with an attorney at Thompson Hine about this ever-evolving benefit.

Key Takeaways:

  • Employers should define and make clear what services and travel costs are covered

  • Understand appropriate risk management factors to be considered

  • Learn about the structure of the benefit plan to accommodate these medical travel benefits
