Learn about Ohio State’s HRA from Brutus Buckeye

If you still have questions about Ohio State’s Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), the HRA toolkit now includes scenarios featuring Brutus Buckeye to help you navigate using your HRA.

Examples include:

  • Brutus uses his HRA and a Flexible Spending Account (FSA): See how his single coverage enrollment with an Ohio State medical plan helps him through the year.
  • Brutus has a change in medical coverage: After he loses his previous coverage, Brutus signs up for Ohio State medical benefits. Find out what happens next.
  • Brutus is a new employee: Brutus just started a job at The Ohio State University! As a new staff member, Brutus has 31 days to enroll in an Ohio State medical plan. Read more about his participation in Your Plan for Health (YP4H) as a benefits-enrolled employee.
  • Brutus has a spouse not enrolled in medical coverage: Mrs. Buckeye has her own health coverage, so Brutus enrolls in an Ohio State medical plan with single coverage. See how Brutus can utilize his FSA and HRA funds for his family’s health care expenses.

An HRA is an account to which Ohio State contributes tax-free* credits that reimburse you for eligible health care expenses. You receive your first $25 after completing your Personal Health and Well-Being Assessment (PHA) with biometrics.
