The Healthcare Landscape is Shifting

With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in 2013, the self-employed have new ways of accessing comprehensive health care.  The NASE is committed to supporting the 23 million self-employed as they navigate the exchange marketplace, while also working to improve and reform the law to better serve the millions of Americans who want access to both comprehensive and affordable health care. 

NASE Pushes Back on Treasury Restrictions to HRAs

The NASE strongly objects to the restrictions placed on Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs) by the US Department of Treasury, all but eliminating the popular tool for micro-business owners.

Learn more about how the NASE is advocating for changes in our fact sheet:

Established in 2002, Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs) or Health Reimbursement Accounts are employer-funded, tax-advantaged employer health benefit plans that reimburse employees for out-of-pocket medical expenses and individual health insurance premiums. Health Reimbursement Accounts are funded solely by the employer, and cannot be funded through employee salary deductions.
