On January 1, 2020, Lasso Healthcare will be rolling out its first group product, a group-focused Medicare Advantage MSA plan.

Employers across the nation are facing a coverage challenge for their 65+ employees. Costs are rising, and it’s becoming more and more expensive to offer health coverage to retirees. This led Lasso Healthcare to ask an important question: why do group Medicare products cost so much to offer when the individual Medicare products are so competitive?

Enter: the Lasso Healthcare Group MSA, an affordable, benefit-rich group product for any sized employee base anywhere in the United States.

How Does an MSA Work?

MSAs are actually very simple when you boil it down to its 4 main components:

  1. Lasso Healthcare deposits money into the member’s MSA savings account.
  2. The member decides how to spend, save, and/or invest the funds.
  3. The member is responsible for expenses until they reach the plan deductible. Then, Lasso Healthcare pays 100% of additional Medicare A/B expenses incurred.
  4. Any funds remaining at the end of the year belong to the member, and the funds roll over to the next year.
