Health Reimbursement Account (HRA)

2023 HRA funds

If you have unused 2023 HRA funds, up to $3,900 will carryover to 2024. They will appear in your account in mid-April, after the 2023 claim filing deadline. You have until March 31, 2024, to submit claims you incurred between January 1 – December 31, 2023.

Ohio State offers a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) to employees who are enrolled in The Ohio State University Faculty and Staff Health Plan. An HRA is an employer-funded account from which you can be reimbursed, tax-free for eligible health care expenses.

You earn access to an HRA through participation in Ohio State’s Your Plan for Health (YP4H) Incentive Program. This is part of the university’s continued effort to provide access to high-quality benefits that help support both your wellness and financial goals.
