WageWorks (NYSE: WAGE), a leading on-demand provider of tax-advantaged programs for consumer-directed healthcare, commuter and other employee spending account benefits, today announced that it has been selected by GE to administer health reimbursement arrangement (HRA) and flexible spending account (FSA) programs for more than 95,000 employees in the United States.
"We are extremely pleased that GE, one of the nation's largest employers and a leader in health benefits, selected us to administer their HRA and FSA accounts" said Joe Jackson, CEO, WageWorks, Inc. "As a company with a proven track record of success providing consumer-directed spending solutions, we're well positioned to support GE and their employees. We consider ourselves true partners with GE and look forward to bringing our advanced technology and service capabilities to their employees."
