Making Health Care Affordable
A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax-exempt trust account that you can put money into in order to save for future medical expenses, in conjunction with a ‘high deductible health plan’ (HDHP). Consumers who have an HDHP are often able to save money on healthcare costs by taking advantage of lower cost high-deductible insurance and paying out-of-pocket costs with pre-tax dollars.
It’s the simplest way to save and spend your health care dollars, with unlimited access to your funds by check or debit card. No minimum balance to open. No monthly service charge. Unlimited check writing. No minimum deposits; tiered interest rate.
