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