What is an HSA?

HSA is short for a Health Savings Account. An HSA is essentially a bank account that can be used for medical expenses. Any deposits made into your HSA account are NOT taxed, so they can be a helpful tool in budgeting for medical expenses over the course of a year.

HSA funds roll over and accumulate year to year if they are not spent. They are checking accounts owned and controlled by YOU, opened at the bank of your choice.
