Health Savings Accounts 
Save for health-related expenses...and more...with a tax advantaged HSA account.  
 
If you have a high deductible health plan (HDHP), you may be eligible for an HSA and these valuable tax benefits.  
HSA contributions are: 
  • Tax-deductible
  • Tax-free distributions (if used properly)
  • Tax deferred earnings
  •  
    HSA balances carry over each year and remain with you regardless of your employment status or health care coverage in the future. Use your HSA for qualified medical expenses, at any age. This generally includes most medical, dental and vision care expenses. Some health insurance premiums may also be considered eligible expenses.  
     
    Contribution limits are determined by the IRS and subject to change each year. Check with your health insurance provider and/or tax adviser for eligibility requirements and details.
