HEALTHCARE SAVINGS ACCOUNTS (HSA) allow you to contribute to a savings account specifically earmarked for health insurance expenses.  Unused HSA balances earn interest, accumulate over time and serve as a "use it or save it" account.

Contributions has tax benefits while withdrawing funds for eligible medical expenses can be made tax free.  HSA's are a great way to save for deductibles, co-payments and out of network healthcare expenses on a tax advantaged basis.  A debit card or optional check book provides easy access to your HSA.  Tax reporting is made easy by providing you with a summary of contributions & withdrawals at the end of each year. 

You are qualified to open & contribute towards an HSA if:
*  You are covered by a single or family high-deductible health plan (HDHP).
*  You are not covered by any other health plan providing any of the same benefits as the HDHP.
*  You are not enrolled in Medicare.
*  You cannot be claimed as a dependent on another person's tax return.

GLOSSARY:

Deductibles: Is the amount of money you must pay in a calendar year for medical services before you can claim health insurance benefits.  Having a higher deductible usually means the cost of your insurance is lower and visa versa.

Copayments/Coinsurance: Is a percentage or fixed Dollar amount that a member pays, once the deductible has been met, as part of sharing costs with the insurance carrier until a specified limit, known as a "maximum out of pocket" has been reached.  Plans with higher co-payments usually have lower premiums and visa versa. 

Maximum Out of Pocket: Is the maximum financial exposure of a member or family as a result of deductibles and copayments thereby providing clarity on the financial limit afforded as a result of the membership to a particular insurance plan.   Once this point is reached, the insurance carrier is typically paying 100% of all further medical costs for the remainder of the calendar year.  Plans with higher maximum out of pocket limits usually have lower premiums.
