With only three months of planning, it launched The NYLCare MSA Program in June Regarded as having the potential to generate a "quantum shift in healthcare," medical savings accounts, or MSAs, are commanding more attention from the media as well as employers that are intrigued by the claims of these programs to pay for healthcare more cost-efficiently.
