Open Enrollment - Miscellaneous Information

Important Information for Spouses Enrolled in Their Employer’s Health Savings Account

More and more companies are offering high-deductible health plans with a Health Savings Account (HSA). Enrollment in these plans most often does not allow the member to be enrolled in another health plan as secondary coverage. If your spouse has HSA coverage through his/her employer and is enrolled in REHP benefits as secondary coverage, he or she will be subject to tax penalties.

We encourage spouses to check with their employers to ensure that they can be enrolled in REHP coverage as secondary.

If your spouse has HSA coverage through his/her employer, you may remove him/her from REHP coverage at any time throughout the year to avoid any tax penalties.
