Thursday's dept meeting featured a guest presentation by the HR director. My ears perked when we started talking about HSAs, but the rules quickly get so convoluted and the advantages so marginal that I would really much rather we as a society stop enabling runaway healthcare profiteering, and step up to the 21st century with the rest of the civilized world in a universal ("single-payer") model.
