HSAs – Health Savings Accounts

View Rates

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are accounts established to pay for future qualified medical expenses with potential tax benefits. The accounts are intended to assist those who have chosen a health insurance plan with a high deductible.

  • How does an HSA work?
    • You must have a high deductible health plan
    • Open an HSA–a tax-sheltered savings account that you can withdraw from anytime, tax-free, to pay for qualified medical expenses not covered by your health plan
    • Individuals or employers can contribute to an HSA up to the annual contribution limit
    • Carry over any unused funds from the previous year–no “use it or lose it” stipulations
    • Use checks or a debit card to pay medical expenses directly from your HSA
    • Earn dividends on any funds in the HSA
