Health Savings Account

If you have a high deductible health insurance plan, you could qualify for a Health Savings Account (HSA). HSA's are designed to help individuals and families save for qualified medical expenses on a tax-free basis. HSA's work like an IRA for healthcare. Contributions and interest are tax-free. Despite being called a savings account, a HSA is technically a checking account that earns interest.

What is a Health Savings Account?

A HSA is money put in an account owned by an individual to pay for future qualified medical expenses.

How does a HSA work?

A HSA works like an IRA, except the money is used to pay for qualified health care costs. Money deposited into the account is tax-deductible and is used to pay for current and future qualified medical expenses. Interest earned is tax-deferred. Unused balances rollover from year to year.

Who can qualify?

Anyone with a high deductible health insurance plan is eligible for a HSA provided they are not covered by another health insurance plan, entitled to Medicare or can’t be claimed as a dependent on someone else's tax return.

**Health Savings Accounts are subject to eligibility requirements and restrictions on deposits and withdrawals to avoid IRS penalties. State taxes may apply. Consult a tax adviser with questions.
