Fortune 1000s with HSA Ranks 53-77

I researched companies ranked 53-77 on the Fortune 1000 list for Health Savings Accounts. All details have been added to rows 55-79 of the attached spreadsheet.

Methodology & FINDINGS

From the list of companies that I researched, the webpages and/or benefits portals of many companies contained information regarding HSA offerings. Since HSA is mentioned on their current websites/portals, we assumed that they still offer HSA in 2018. For all such companies, I have input '2018' against their respective cells on the spreadsheet and made a short note about it as well. These companies include the Walt Disney Company, Cisco Systems, Sysco Corporation, Caterpillar, New York Life Insurance Company, the Coca-Cola Company, HCA Holdings, Ingram Micro, American Airlines Group, Delta Air Lines, Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co., Liberty Mutual Holding Company, Honeywell International, and Oracle Corporation.

I had to resort to Glassdoor as the last option for some companies. I used the respective companies' employee reviews to determine if they offer HSA to their employees. I used the review dates to determine the year in which they offered HSA, which may not be the case but I had no other option other than to use the review date as the year in which the companies offered HSA. These companies include Equity Transfer, L.P., Johnson Controls, and Best Buy Co.

Pfizer, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Tyson Foods, and the Goldman Sachs Group do not offer HSA, as determined from their respective benefits webpages. Overall, I was able to find evidence that of the 25 companies I investigated, 21 of them offered an HSA plan.

Please note that some companies offered Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), however, I have assumed them to be the same, because according to HCA Healthcare, FSA is a type of HSA. These companies include New York Life Insurance Company, the Coca-Cola Company, Delta Air Lines, Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co., and Merck & Co. Please also note that for Ingram Micro, the company's Canada webpage states that they offer HSA, therefore, I assumed that they also offer HSA in the US as well.

For each company, I have used the most recent sources available regarding their HSA plans. I have noted down the year of the plan that the source relates to within column E of the spreadsheet.

CONCLUSION

To sum up, the Walt Disney Company, Cisco Systems, Sysco Corporation, Caterpillar, New York Life Insurance Company, the Coca-Cola Company, HCA Holdings, Ingram Micro, American Airlines Group, Delta Air Lines, Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co., Liberty Mutual Holding Company, Honeywell International, Oracle Corporation, Equity Transfer, L.P., Johnson Controls, the Dow Chemical Company, FedEx Corporation, Merck & Co., Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company, and Best Buy Co. offer HSA plans; whereas Pfizer, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Tyson Foods, and the Goldman Sachs Group do not.

Fortune 1000s with HSA Ranks 78-102

The required details for Fortune 1000s from ranks 78-102 have been populated in the attached spreadsheet.

METHODOLOGY

The companies ranked between 78 and 102 were obtained from the Forbes 1000 list. We first looked for the HSA offerings information on company websites. Only in some cases did we find all required information directly from the company website. When we failed to find information on the company website, we searched for company-specific HSA information on the website of the health plan provider for the company. Despite this, there were some companies for which we did not find any information.

This led us to search some sites like benefitspro.com that only divulge details on whether a company has an HSA plan and not whether it also offers non-HSA plans. Failing all this we made generic searches on Google, which in most cases did not fetch any more relevant information than what we came across otherwise. Companies for which no information was found have been marked as N/A.

The employee count mentioned for most companies is the global employee count. The top-ranking Fortune 1000 companies are all global companies and do not disclose US specific employee count on their websites. US employee count for individual companies may have to be triangulated and therefore cannot be done in the available time. We have obtained global employee count of companies from Owler.

CONCLUSION

As required, all available information pertaining to companies ranked 78 to 102 have been entered in the attached spreadsheet.

Fortune 1000s with HSA Ranks 103-127

SUMMARY

We have determined if the companies ranked 103-127 in the Fortune 1000 list in rows 105-129 of the spreadsheet offer their employees HSA (Health Savings Account) as a part of their health care benefits package and entered our result in the spreadsheet as requested.
For each company, we researched its healthcare benefits package to determine if it offered HSA. Where we were unable to find its health benefits package, we looked at current employee reviews, SEC filings, and other media reports to determine if HSA is offered to its employees. We also reported details of the HSA where available. For companies that offer HSA, we also completed columns B-H as requested. We have entered all our findings into the spreadsheet as requested.

CONCLUSION

To wrap, we have completed rows 105-129 of the attached spreadsheet.

Fortune 1000s with HSA Ranks 153-177

Lear Corporation, The Kraft Heinz Company, Fluor Corporation, AECOM, CenturyLink, General Mills, Thermo Fisher Scientific, American Electric Power Company, The PNC Financial Services Group, and Freeport-McMoRan offer a health savings account (HSA).

Our findings are available in rows 155-179 of the attached spreadsheet.

FINDINGS

After an extensive search through each company's website, annual reports, wellness programs and, benefits page, we found that while a number of the companies listed in the attached spreadsheet, rows 155-179, offer a health savings account (HSA), most do not. Additionally, some offer a flexible spending account (FSA). It is worth noting that while the HSA and the FSA are similar in that the FSA "offers the same savings and pretax benefits as an HSA," for someone who has a "higher cost health plan;" the major difference is that with the FSA one can only contribute a maximum of $2,500 a year and "funds don't roll over if you don't use them." Unlike the FSA, a HSA has more flexibility.

Fortune 1000s with HSA Ranks 178-202

Rows 180-204, columns B-H of the attached spreadsheet were completed with all the requested information. We searched through company websites of Fortune 1000 companies to note whether they provided health savings accounts (HSA). We then searched for their plan notes, company headquarters, and employee numbers for every company ranked 178-202 on the Fortune list.

MeTHODOLOGY & FINDINGS

A few companies' HSA plans and other health plans were not available therefore, we searched Glassdoor reviews and found benefit plans given to the employees and thus have been included in the sources. We discovered that only eight of the companies on this portion of the research did not offer HSA plans. Those companies are Dollar Tree, PPG Industries, Icahn Enterprises L.P., Western Digital Corporation, Marriott International, Office Depot, and Nordstrom.

CONCLUSION

Rows 180-204, columns B-H were completed on the attached spreadsheet. We were able to locate eight companies for this portion of the research request that did not provide HSA plans to their employees.

Fortune 1000s with HSA, Ranks 203-227

The required details for Fortune 1000s from ranks 203-227 have been populated in the attached spreadsheet. Below you will find the methodology we adopted to gather the required information.
METHODOLOGY
The companies ranked between 203 and 227 were obtained from the Fortune 1000 list. We first looked for the HSA offerings information on company websites. Only in some cases did we find all required information directly from the company website. When we failed to find information on the company website, we searched for company-specific HSA information on the website of the health plan provider for the company. Despite this, there were some companies for which we did not find any information at all.
This led us to search some sites like BenefitsPro and Glassdoor. Failing all this we made generic searches on Google, which in most cases did not fetch any more relevant information than what we came across otherwise. Companies for which no information was found have been marked as N/A.

Any information we came across on company websites have been assumed to be updated for the year 2018, unless otherwise mentioned. Also, all the information obtained from the benefits pro website is dated 2017, therefore, it is assumed to be relevant to 2017.
The employee count mentioned for most companies is the global employee count. The top-ranking Fortune 1000 companies are mostly global companies and do not disclose US specific employee count on their websites. US employee count for individual companies may have to be triangulated and therefore cannot be done in the available time. We have obtained global employee count of companies from Owler and the Forbes 2000 Global list.
CONCLUSION
As required, all available information pertaining to companies ranked 230 to 227 have been entered in the attached spreadsheet.
