Health Savings Account
Health Savings Accounts (HAS) are designed to help you manage your funds for out-of-pocket health care expenses. HSAs are available solely for individuals who have a high deductible health plan (HDHP). The account is a tool that allows you to pay for future qualified medical and retiree health expenses on a tax-free basis. Any adult can contribute to an HSA if they:
- Have coverage under an HSA qualified “high deductible health plan”.
- Have no other first-dollar medical coverage.
- Are not enrolled in Medicare.
- Can not be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s tax return.
The advantage of an HSA is:
- Security – Your high deductible insurance and HSA protect you against high or unexpected medical bills.
- Affordability – You should be able to lower your health insurance premiums by switching to health insurance coverage with a higher deductible.
- Flexibility – You can use the funds for current medical expenses or save for future expenses.
- Ownership – Funds remain in the account from year to year, just like an IRA. There are no “use it or lose it” rules for HSA.
- Tax Savings – A HSA provides you triple tax savings. Tax deductions when you contribute to your account; tax-free earnings on the account; and tax-free withdrawals for qualified medical expenses.
