How are you paying for the next hospital trip?
HSA Accounts allow you to save money to pay for future medical expenses on an income tax-free basis. Any individual, who has an approved High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) and who is not covered under another disqualifying health plan, can participate in an HSA.
A Health Savings Account is really a combination of a health insurance policy meeting minimum US Treasury policy design requirements called a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) and a separate custodial savings account for future medical expenses called a Health Savings Account (HSA). Congress created the HSA as a way to cover your future medical expenses, and it is subject to IRS regulations and guidelines.
A health insurance company or an insurance plan usually provides the qualified health insurance policy, and EUCCU acts as the custodian and administers the savings account portion of the HSA.
