How Can An HSA Help Me?

What is a health savings account (HSA)?

Health savings accounts (HSAs) help people save money on their medical expenses. Because of their powerful tax savings, they’re the best way to pay for healthcare costs.

“HSAs are the closest thing to a free lunch offered by the Federal Government”
– John Kador, WealthManagement Magazine

Are HSAs the same as flexible spending accounts (FSAs)?

No, HSAs are better! Here’s why:

  • HSA funds roll over with no use-it-or-lose-it limits, while you lose FSA funds if you don’t use them at the end of the year
  • HSA funds stay with you when you change jobs or retire, while FSA funds don’t come with you
  • HSA funds can be used as an investment vehicle to build wealth, while FSA funds cannot be invested

HSA tax savings:

  • Contributions to your HSA are either pre-tax or tax-deductible
  • HSA interest and earnings grow tax-free
  • HSA funds can be used tax-free to pay for qualified medical expenses for you, your spouse, and your tax dependents, even if they’re on different health plans. See a list of qualified medical expenses here.
