Health Savings Accounts
A Health Savings Account (HSA) combines high deductible health insurance with a tax-favored savings account. Different from other benefit products, HSA’s roll over from year to year. There is no “use it or lose it”. Interest is paid, and it is owned by you, not your employer. Your HSA contributions can be used to pay for a wide range of eligible medical expenses not typically covered by low deductible health insurance or other healthcare accounts.
