HSA - Health Savings Account
What is a health savings account? In its simplest form, a Health Savings Account (HSA) is much like a personal savings account but it may only be used to pay for qualified medical expenses, such as prescriptions and co-pays from a doctor's visit. The money you place into an HSA is not taxed and the amount you can add each year is determined by the IRS (and subject to change).
Health Savings Accounts are available to taxpayers who are enrolled in a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). The money in your HSA rolls over each year and accumulates if it's not spent.
HSA Tax Benefits
- You can deduct all contributions to your HSA on your taxes, with the exception of any money added to your account by an employer or from your IRA
- Withdrawals from your account may be made tax-free to pay for qualified medical expenses, including vision and dental
- Earn tax-free interest on the money in your Health Savings Account
