Health Savings Account (HSA)

An HSA is a savings account that allows you to put money aside on a pre-tax basis for qualified medical expenses. Funds can be used for a wide range of expenses, including doctor visits, prescriptions, vision, dental expenses, and more. 

Account Benefits

  • Covers most medical expenses for whomever is covered under the plan. 
  • Contributions are tax deductible. 
  • Tax-free withdrawals to pay for qualified medical expenses. 
  • No “Use it or Lose it” Rules – Any unused money in your account is carried over to the next year.
  • Contribute via payroll – Set aside a specific amount from your paycheck 
  • You own the account. Even if you leave your employer, relocate, or become unemployed, the money is yours.
  • After age 65, you can use the funds for non-medical expenses without penalty.
