Health Savings Accounts

What is a Health Savings Account ("HSA")?

A Health Savings Account is an alternative to traditional health insurance; it is a savings product that offers a different way for consumers to pay for their health care. HSAs enable you to pay for current health expenses and save for future qualified medical and retiree health expenses on a tax-free basis.


To make contributions to an HSA the account owner must meet all of the following requirements:

  • Must be covered under a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)1
  • Is not covered by any other health plan that is not a HDHP
  • Is not enrolled in Medicare
  • Is not actively using a Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
  • Cannot be claimed as a dependent on another person's tax return
  • Is less than 65 years old. Individuals may not make regular contributions to an HSA in or after the tax year they reach age 65.

The account owner is responsible for determining eligibility. Please consult your tax advisor.
