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. With the NYLCare MSA Program, NYLCare is the first national health benefits organization to offer MSAs as part of its small group indemnity plans, an aggressive move for a healthcare company to make on a national level given the unresolved status of MSAs (Congress as well as the IRS are still in a cautious wait-and-see mode where this legislation is concerned).
