Health Savings Accounts
Wish there was a cost-effective way to provide health insurance for your hired hands? Ask about the financial benefits of a high-deductible health plan, coupled with a Health Savings Account (HSA) from your Hometown Community Bank.
In comparison to a traditional health plan, high deductible health plans typically have a reduced premium and a higher deductible (see IRS rules to determine if your insurance plan qualifies.) The reduced premium lowers your farm's healthcare expense, while allowing you to still provide valuable healthcare coverage.
