Health Savings

A fitness tracker for your healthcare expenses.

Smart savings for your healthcare

A health savings account (HSA) works hand-in-hand with a qualified health insurance plan to maximize saving for qualified health expenses.  Typically, an HSA-qualified health plan costs less than a traditional plan and the money you save can be put into a health savings account with tax benefits.  Consult your tax advisor for your state’s tax rules and your specific situation.

Tax-free Contributions and Earnings

The money you put into your HSA up to the annual contribution limit may be tax-free.  The interest earned may be too! 

Tax-free Withdrawals

Funds can be drawn tax-free for qualified medical expenses that your insurance does not cover like prescriptions, eye exams or lab work.
