  • QSEHRAs and HRAs: Latest Developments. March 21, 2018, 12:00–2:00 pm Central (recording available afterwards). The IRS issued voluminous QSEHRA guidance in late 2017, and President Trump’s Executive Order directed the responsible federal agencies to consider expanding HRA flexibility for all employers. What’s new, what’s in the works, and what should employers, service providers, and advisors do now? We’ll consider the public comments on the QSEHRA FAQ guidance, what to expect as the FAQs become regulations, and what the agencies may be considering for HRAs.
