Health Savings Account

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is an account that you can put money into to save for current and future medical expense, which generally includes medical, dental and vision. An HSA allows you to reduce your insurance premium by choosing a low-premium, High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). Instead of paying a high premium to a health insurer, use the difference in the premium to fund your HSA and begin building financial security.

There are certain advantages to putting money into these accounts, including favorable tax benefits. You control this money, deciding how to spend it on your health care needs and whatever you don’t spend is yours to keep — forever. It becomes a financial asset that you can use as an additional source of retirement income.

Our HSA has all the features, convenience and control you want, plus we offer an HSA loan to fund the account. There’s no better place to have your HSA than with us…it’s easy to open, easy to fund, and easy to use.
