FARGO N.D.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Healthcare Trends Institute has announced a new survey of employers regarding flexible spending accounts, or FSAs, with focus on adoption and modifications announced by the Internal Revenue Service in October 2013, effective for the 2014 plan year.
The FSA 2014 Rollover Survey looks to benchmark how companies have adapted to the new FSA rollover rules during the 2014 plan year, including participation, contribution, and company preparation for the modifications that took place.
The short 16-question survey will provide confidential and anonymous data for other employers and stakeholders on how to better prepare for upcoming plan years leading up to the institution of the ‘Cadillac Tax’ taking effect in 2018. Interested companies are welcome to take the FSA 2014 Rollover Survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FSASurvey2014.
“With the new FSA rules changing how employees spend and save, we hope the results of this survey will help to promote informed decision making among employers across industries,” says Tiffany Wirth, Executive Director of the Healthcare Trends Institute.
Survey participants will have the opportunity to be the first recipients of the FSA 2014 Rollover Survey results, scheduled to be announced in Spring 2015.
