How HSAs Work

  • Checking Account: A Health Savings Account combines your high-deductible health insurance plan with an interest-bearing, tax-favored account
  • Health Coverage Benefits: Savings can be used for any qualified medical expenses–even those not typically covered by your plans
  • Tax Benefits: Contributions to your HSA are 100% tax deductible*
  • Benefits Carry Forward: Unused savings, or earnings, can be used in future years

*Applicable to all qualified medical expenses

Check with your insurance agent, or tax preparer, for details on qualified HSA plans.
