Have a Health Savings Account but not sure what it is or how to use it?

What is a Health Savings Account?

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a personal bank account created exclusively for individuals to pay for eligible health expenses and save for future healthcare expenses tax-free.

How does the HSA work?

It’s just like a bank account, but for eligible medical expenses. Here’s how it works:

-Put money in your HSA through payroll deduction or direct deposit.

-When you have an eligible expense, withdraw money from your HSA to pay for it. Or save your

money for a future expense like pregnancy or braces.

-Once you reach your HDHP (High Deductible Health Plan) deductible, your health plan coverage starts.
