What is a Health Savings Account (HSA)?
- A tax sheltered savings account designed to be used in conjunction with a high-deductible health plan (HDHP).
- Contributions are used to pay current and future medical expenses.
- Money deposited to the account is 100% tax-deductible, and you can withdraw the funds to pay any qualified medical expenses tax-free.
- If the distributed amount is used for anything other than a qualified medical expense, the amount can be taxed.
- Money in the account can be rolled over from year to year without a penalty, and the funds will continue to earn interest tax-free.
- Contributions to your personal HSA can be made by you, your employer, or both. (If a contribution is made by the employer, it is not taxable to the employee.)
