A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax-advantaged* investment account that is used for medical expenses for participants in High Deductible Health Care Plans. Contributions made into the HSA - either by an individual or employer - could reduce
taxable income. The money in the HSA can be used for qualified medical expenses for yourself, spouse, or dependent children.
In a High Deductible Health Care Plan, your premiums are lower than traditional health insurance plans. With the money saved from lower premiums, you can deposit that money into an HSA to help pay for future medical costs.
The money deposited is generally pre-tax deductions from your paycheck. The funds withdrawn are not taxed, provided they are used for qualified medical expenses. Best of all, you can start using the funds right away, and they always stay with you if you
ever switch from one job to another.
HSAs are designed so that you can always withdraw money when you need it. The money can be withdrawn by either a debit card or by writing a check. Money you don't withdraw has the potential to grow and accumulate interest. With no enrollment fee for our
HSA, you can save even more money.
