PhyNet is a fast growing company. Headquartered in Nashville, it has doubled in size since February, growing from about 300 employees to more than 600 employees in 50 locations across the US.
Heading up their HR operations is Brian Arnds, a benefits veteran with more than 20 years of experience in the space. As a team of one, he has a lot on his plate — but there's one less thing to worry about since October, when PhyNet introduced Amino HSA to their employees.
Two months after the launch, we sat down with Brian to discuss his vision for consumer-driven healthcare and why he chose Amino as PhyNet's new HSA provider.
Why are you offering an HSA to your employees this year?
Healthcare is getting more and more expensive. Our goal is to change that trend by offering a HDHP and getting employees more involved in their healthcare spending and choices.
Why did you choose Amino as your HSA provider?
With Amino, we have the ability to offer an HSA — but it really complements our consumer-driven plan, too.
How easy was it to implement Amino HSA?
As far as implementations go, this was one of the easiest I've ever experienced with any vendor.
If you were to recommend Amino to a colleague in your industry, what would you say?
Amino is a unique offering that complements our consumer-driven idea of healthcare.
