Instructions for ICHRA employees renewing through HSA Insurance
We make it easy for HSA Insurance members to renew coverage online through their HSA member account! Watch the video or follow the step-by-step instructions below on how to review and manage your enrollment coverage online. It takes less than 5 minutes!
Before you start the renewal process, make sure to verify your contribution amount for the new year! You can check your contribution amount by contacting your HRA Administrator or employer’s HR Department. It is important to notify your HRA Administrator and/or employer of any changes to ensure your contribution is correctly updated for the new year!
It is important to know that all individual ICHRA plans renew January 1. You can change your enrollment during the non-group Open Enrollment plan year which runs from November 1 through December 23 for a January 1 effective date. You can still make changes for February 1 or March 1 through the end of the day, January 23. We do not need supporting documentation during the non-group Open Enrollment period. Benefit elections are binding until the next Open Enrollment period, unless you experience a qualifying life event such as marriage, divorce, legal separation, death in the family, spouse loss of other coverage, birth or adoption of a child or a dependent child reaching limiting age.

If you are happy with your current carrier network, but would like to change plan designs, select option 2 “Shop Plans”. This option is often selected to lower your monthly premiums by increasing deductibles, copays, or co-insurance with the same carrier, but you also have the option to upgrade to a richer plan design.
When you select option 2, you will be redirected to our shopping page. Your current plan will be highlighted. The renewal premium will be posted under “Monthly Premium” field. Other plan options with the same carrier will be posted under your current plan.

Once confirmed, you will be presented with other available carrier plan options. Your health plan options are sorted from lowest monthly premium to highest monthly premium. You can change the sort by option or select one of the filters on the left-hand side of the page to further narrow your search.
It is important you verify if your current providers would be in-network for each offered plan. Our unique doctor search tool allows you to check at one time which plans have one or more of your doctors, such as PCP, specialist, pediatrician, in-network. Simply search and save as many doctors as you would like.
To add a provider, select “ADD/UPDATE” under “Search by Doctor.” Then enter your provider’s name and select the correct provider office. Once you have added all providers, verify which are accepted in network for each offered plan option by looking at “Doctor Count.” Providers that are in the plan’s network, will be shown under “Doctor Count.”
You can compare plan options by using the “Plan Comparison” feature. The plan comparison feature allows you to compare up to 4 plans side-by-side in a user-friendly comparison chart. When you have reviewed your options and are ready to change carrier plans, select the desired plan by clicking on “Select Plan ”. On your final proposal page, verify your census information and the selected plan option before selecting “Enroll”.
To submit your carrier change enrollment, you must assign a primary care provider to the subscriber and any dependents enrolling in the plan. If you do not have a subscriber, select “Choose a PCP for me ”.
