Health Savings Accounts

HSAs can empower your employees to get the most out of their health care dollars and take control of their spending. If you offer a qualified high-deductible health plan, you can offer an HSA to help manage costs and sustain health benefits.

Benefits for your organization

  • Reduced payroll taxes — Employees' pretax contributions reduce your payroll taxes and their taxable income (in most states).
  • Decreased paperwork — Employees are responsible for verifying their expenses, paying for qualified medical expenses with their HSAs and reporting tax on account distributions.
  • Enhanced benefits package — Attract and retain employees with a product that helps employees pay for health care now and save for health care in the future.

Benefits for your employees

  • Reduced income taxes — Employees' contributions reduce their taxable income (in most states).
  • Tax-free growth — Accounts earn interest at competitive rates.
  • Investment options — Employees can use some of their money to invest in no-load mutual funds for greater potential growth over time.
  • Tax-free distributions — Employees can use the funds to pay for current and future eligible medical expenses free of taxes.
  • Employer contribution option — You can choose to augment your employees' savings. Employer contributions drive greater employee engagement and savings.
  • Portability — Employees take the funds with them and can continue contributing if they opt for a qualified high-deductible plan in the future. Even if they don't, they can spend remaining savings at any time on qualified medical expenses.
  • Control over health care spending — HSAs can encourage employees to be more involved in managing their health care needs and promote more cost-conscious decisions.
