Health Savings Accounts

If you have a high deductible healthcare plan, a Health Savings Account may be for you.

Health Savings Accounts


A health savings account, or HSA, is a medical savings account that allows you to set aside money to pay for health care expenses on a pre-tax basis. When you have a large, unanticipated medical expense, your insurance might not cover it unless you have already met your plan's deductible. If you’ve been paying into a health savings account, you’ll have a store of tax-free money with which to pay the deductible. If you’ve already reached your deductible, these funds can be used to pay other out-of-pocket expenses.

Why have an HSA?
  • Flexibility to pay for current medical expenses or save for future needs
  • Tax-deductible contributions
  • Tax-deferred earnings
  • Tax-free distributions if used properly
  • Remains with you even with change of health coverage or employment
