Highlights
How the Account Works
  • The Health Savings Account is a tax-advantaged account available to employees who elect the Marsh & McLennan Companies $1,500 Deductible Plan or $2,850 Deductible Plan.
  • You contribute to your account through payroll deductions on a before-tax basis.
  • You can make a tax-free withdrawal up to the balance available in your account to cover qualified medical expenses.
  • Your account can also pay for non-qualified medical expenses, although withdrawals for such expenses are subject to federal, state, and local taxes, as applicable, and in most cases a penalty tax.
  • Amounts contributed to the Health Savings Account belong to you and are completely portable. Although you cannot roll the Health Savings Account funds over into an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you can roll the Health Savings Account funds into another Health Savings Account.

  • You are eligible if you are an employee classified on payroll as a US regular employee of Marsh & McLennan Companies or any subsidiary or affiliate of Marsh & McLennan Companies (other than Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC and any of its subsidiaries (MMA)).
