My HRA Is Not Dead… It Can Pay Bills in 2015 With Existing Funds

Yesterday my boss told me that our existing HRA plan which I was told would terminate on December 15, 2014 can pay bills in 2015 with funds that were committed in 2014. I guess that since it has funds we can keep on going until it runs out. This is short term solution since the company cannot add additional funds to the HRA in 2015. My boss is hoping that H.R.5860 – Small Business Healthcare Relief Act of 2014 will pass and allow companies to catch up on 2015 funding and payments.
