What Does Owning a Health Savings Account (HSA) Look Like

In this blog, we will outline all that you need to know about a Health Savings Account as well as the next steps to get yours started! 

What is an HSA?

An HSA or Health Savings Account is a type of savings account that allows you to set aside money on a pre-tax basis. Funds in an HSA are typically saved to pay for qualified medical expenses. The untaxed dollars in a Health Savings Account used to pay for deductibles, copayments, coinsurance, and other health-related expenses help you overall lower your healthcare costs. 

What Are HSA Accounts Used For? 

The funds in a Health Savings Account can be used at any time to pay for qualified medical expenses. You may contribute to an HSA only if you have a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) — generally a health plan that only covers preventive services before the deductible. An HSA is used to help offset out-of-pocket healthcare expenses. 

Who determines what is considered qualified? Typically, the IRS ultimately determines what is considered a qualified expense. When opening an HSA, it is highly recommended you speak with your employer and insurance carrier to make sure your coverage qualifies as a high-deductible health plan. 

How to Get Started on a Health Savings Account 

Getting started on a Health Savings Account is simple. Here are some benefits of our Health Savings Account: 

  • The contributions that you deposit to the account can be carried over from year to year and you can continue to contribute to the account as long as you qualify.
  • Savings cover your deductible as allowed by the Federal Government.
  • This Health Savings Account moves with you, regardless of employment.
  • Once you apply for Medicare, the savings becomes yours.
  • A checkbook is issued for medical payments as necessary.

* As with all tax-related issues, be sure to consult with an accountant or other qualified advisor regarding eligibility and tax implications. All certificates, including Individual Retirement Accounts, carry penalties for early withdrawal.
