How does a Health Savings Account benefit you?
A health savings account is a personal savings account specially designed for individuals with a high-deductible health plan. When funds are used for qualified medical expenses, contributions are tax-deductible*! This specific savings account allows you to pay for qualified medical expenses as you incur them.
To qualify for an HSA, an individual must:
- Be enrolled in a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)
- Not be covered under another non-HDHP
- Not be enrolled in Medicare
- Not be eligible to be claimed as a dependent on another’s individual tax return
What medical services/expenses qualify?
Qualified medical expenses are generally those that qualify for medical expense tax deductions, including amounts paid for doctors’ fees, prescriptions, and certain vision care.
The IRS Publication 502 contains a partial list of qualified medical expenses.
Hometown Community Banks recommend seeking professional advice from your trusted tax advisor for details concerning your specific situation.
How are funds accessed?
Funds may be accessed with your free HSA debit card or checks.
