What is an HSA?

An HSA or Health Savings Account is an account that allows you to set aside money on a pre-tax basis. Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are designed for paying qualified medical expenses. The funds in an HSA are tax-free and can be used to cover costs such as deductibles, copayments, coinsurance, and other healthcare-related expenses, providing you with a way to effectively lower your overall 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.
