Health Savings Accounts (HSA)

An HSA, when paired with a high deductible health plan (HDHP), is the smart way to pay for medical expenses. You’ll enjoy triple tax savings, including tax-free dividends that pay higher rates on larger balances, plus dividends to help you grow your funds.

And by giving you another payment option for qualifying medical expenses, an HSA will help keep your savings account healthy too. Accessing your funds is always simple with your free HSA MasterCard® Debit card, and there are no setup, monthly, or annual fees. Best of all, your HSA stays with you from year-to-year, regardless of employer.
