Health Savings Accounts (HSA)

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is an important component of your BenefitWallet and an integral part of your high deductible health plan strategy. The idea is simple: after enrolling in a qualified high deductible health plan (HDHP) and opening an HSA, members can use accumulated tax-free contributions to pay for health care costs for themselves, their spouse and any tax dependents — including doctor and hospital visits, co-payments, eyeglasses, prescriptions, certain long-term care insurance premiums and COBRA premiums.

Members can contribute to an HSA up to an annual limit specified by the IRS, and retain control of the account and are able to rollover any funds remaining at the end of the year. From day one, the funds belong to members and can be used at any time in the future.
