Health Savings Account

Printer Friendly

The Health Savings Account is designed to help you save up for current or future medical expenses incurred because you are covered by a high deductible health plan.

 Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are tax-favored accounts specifically designed to help you pay medical expenses for yourself, your spouse, and your dependants if you are covered by a high-deductible health plan (HDHP).

An HDHP is a health insurance plan that offers lower premiums in exchange for a higher deductible. If you are covered by an HDHP, then you can save by contributing money to a HSA, which you can then use to pay your medical expenses as they arise.

BENEFITS OF A HSA:

HSA Contribution Limits
  Individual Coverage Family Coverage
2013 $3,250 $6,450
2014 $3,300 $6,550
If you are age 55 before the end of the taxable year, you may contribute $1,000 more as a “catch-up” contribution. Both contribution limits are subject to potential cost-of-living increases.
  • Contributions are tax-deductible
  • Contributions made by an employer are excluded from income
  • Earnings are tax-deferred
  • Never taxed if used for qualified medical expenses as defined by the IRS
  • Balances "roll over" each year if unused
  • Unused balances may supplement retirement**
