As limits are being imposed on flexible spending accounts starting in 2013, more employers are turning to health savings accounts. Many employers see HSAs as an option to enhance awareness and consumerism of health care costs, but it takes some effort to help employees fully realize how HSAs work.

Traditionally, HSAs have been seen as a type of plan that is best for people with few health issues, but that is not necessarily true, says Paul Ashley, adviser for FirstPerson, an employee benefits firm in Indianapolis. In Ashley’s experience, HSAs can benefit all types of people – no matter their health care costs – if they are willing to take an active role in their health and consumption.
