Health Savings Accounts

Kids Community Halloween Party Learn More »
Health Savings Account A Health Savings Account (HSA) is designed to help individuals with a HighDeductible Health Plan (HDHP) save for qualified medical expenses on a tax-advantaged basis. An HDHP is a health insurance plan that generally offers lower premiums in exchange for a higher deductible. Individuals can save by contributing money saved on premiums to their HSA and then using the money to pay for medical expenses.

Benefits of a Health Savings Account Triple Tax Savings

  • Tax deductions when you contribute to your account
  • Tax free earnings through investment
  • Tax free withdrawals for qualified medical expenses

Consult your tax advisor about the tax benefits applicable to Health Savings Accounts. Qualified medical expenses are defined under Section 213(C) of the IRS Code. More detail to the IRS Publication available about Medical and Dental Expenses here.

A Health Savings Account will give you the opportunity to pay for unexpected medical bills by saving the money in a qualified plan that earns dividends. The account is affordable and flexible. You can contribute to your HSA at any time during the year and your HSA balance rolls over from year to year. There are no "use it or lose" rules on your HSA. You can set up automatic transfers or deposit to your HSA.
