Health Savings Account (HSA)
It's been said that nothing in life is free; nowhere is this more painfully true than when it comes to healthcare expenses. A Health Savings Account (HSA) from Financial One helps you set aside for medical expenses before they even arise.
Benefit from tax advantages associated with our different options.* You can't always control your bodily health, but an HSA can help boost your financial health.

- Three convenient types of accounts available:

- Contributions are tax-free and can be made by you, your employer, or a third party

*Consult a tax advisor.
**You can withdraw funds at any time for any purpose. However, if funds are withdrawn for reasons other than qualified medical expenses, the amount withdrawn will be included as taxable income, and is subject to a 10% penalty.
In order to have an HSA, you must be covered under a HSA-compatible High-Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). Not all HDHPs are HSA-compatible, so check with your insurance provider to ensure it meets all requirements.
In addition to having an HDHP, you must also meet the following requirements.
- You cannot be enrolled in Medicare.
- You cannot be claimed as a dependent on anybody else's tax returns.
- You may not be covered by another health plan (some limited exceptions do apply).
You and your spouse (if applicable) generally cannot have additional health coverage that is not an HDHP. An individual who is covered by a qualified HDHP may, however, qualify for an HSA even if his/her spouse is covered by a non-HDHP plan. Accident, disability, dental, vision and long-term care insurances do not affect your ability to qualify for an HSA. Refer to IRS Publication 969 for more details.
