Personal Health Savings

Overview

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a savings account that works much like an IRA – except the money is intended for qualified health care costs.  You can pay for current health expenses and save for future qualified medical expenses on a tax-free basis1.

Who Can Have One?

Anyone under the age of 65 who is covered by a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) is eligible to open a Health Savings Account.

Why should I own an HSA?

You can save money by:

  • Deducting 100% of your HSA contributions from your taxable income

  • Accruing interest on a tax-free1 basis

  • Paying no penalties or taxes when you use your HSA to pay for qualified medical expenses

  • Having a high-deductible HSA-eligible health insurance plan, which typically has a lower premium than a plan with a lower deductible
