A Health Savings Account (HSA) is your very own account that you fund. It gives you control over your healthcare costs. You decide how to use the funds in your HSA for your qualified health expenses.
To open and make contributions to a Health Savings Account, you must be enrolled in a high-deductible health plan. Speak with your employer or seek counsel from your insurance representative for more information regarding the legal definition of a high-deductible plan.
