Health Savings Account

A healthy way to save

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) can help you manage your health care costs. If you have a high-deductible health plan (HDHP), you can set aside funds tax-free1 in an HSA to pay medical expenses. Unlike a flexible spending account, you do not lose money if you do not spend your contributions within the calendar year. Features include:

  • Low opening deposit of $100 + a low setup charge
  • No monthly service fee for balances greater than $0
  • No transaction charges
  • HSA Debit Card offers convenience payment method
  • Unlimited check writing

To be eligible for an HSA, you need to meet the following criteria:

  • Are not enrolled in Medicare
  • Are not claimed as a dependent on another’s tax return
  • Do not have additional health coverage that isn’t a qualified high-deductible health plan (HDHP)
  • Are covered by an HSA-eligible, high-deductible health plan (HDHP)

Individuals and/or employers set aside funds in an HSA to pay for out-of-pocket medical expenses, including:

  • Doctor and dentist visits
  • Prescriptions
  • Transportation to receive medical care
  • Qualified long-term care premiums
  • Health premiums when you are unemployed or over age 65
  • Hearing aids, eyeglasses and LASIK
