Benefits options for nonprofits

At PeopleKeep, our software allows you to administer health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs).


Qualified small employer HRA

A powerful alternative to group health insurance made specifically for small employers.



Individual coverage HRA

A health benefit that enables employers to cover the individual insurance plans their employees choose.



Group coverage


A health benefit that employers can use to help employees with their out-of-pocket expenses.



Health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs) for nonprofits

An HRA is an IRS-approved health benefit that enables employers to reimburse their W-2 employees tax-free for qualifying medical expenses such as health insurance premiums and other out-of-pocket expenses. Employers simply set a monthly allowance for their employees to use and approve their eligible expenses for reimbursement.

There are two types of HRAs that can be leveraged as alternatives to traditional group health insurance. The QSEHRA is specifically designed for organizations with fewer than 50 full-time equivalent employees (FTEs), while an ICHRA is an excellent option for nonprofits of all sizes. 

Employers that offer a group plan can supplement it with a GCHRA to cover their employees' out-of-pocket expenses.

Complete cost control

Set a budget that works for your team and avoid any unexpected rate hikes

No minimum size requirements

Unlike many group policies, an HRA doesn't require you to meet a participation threshold

Personalization and flexibility

Employees can spend allowances the health policies, services, and products that work best for them

Tax-free reimbursements

Reimbursements are tax-free for employers and employees who have minimum essential coverage

Offer an HRA to your employees in three easy steps:


Step 1: Design your benefit & invite employees

Customize your benefit so it’s uniquely suited to your needs. You get to decide how much you want to offer employees each month, which expenses are eligible for reimbursement, and more.


Step 2: Employees make eligible medical purchases

Once your benefit is set up and you invite your employees, they can use their allowances. Eligible expenses can include anything listed under IRS Publication 502, though you can limit these items. Employees then submit proof of incurred expenses through our software.

Step 3: Review and approve expenses

Once employees submit their expenses and documentation, the PeopleKeep documentation review team experts will review your employees’ submissions for you. If it’s a qualified expense, you can reimburse your employee through payroll, check, cash, or bank transfer.
