Who We Are


What is an HSA?

HSAs are tax-advantaged accounts that accumulate interest and can earn investment returns. The funds can be used to pay for qualified medical expenses today or can be saved for future expenses.

Account Advantages

Triple tax savings

Interest and investments

Multiple uses Easy to access  Portable – it stays with you when you leave your company or retire

Unlike traditional insurance where you only benefit if you use it, with an HSA, you can spend your HSA on today’s expenses, or save and invest your HSA funds for future expenses or for retirement!


HSAs and Taxes

HSAs are tax exempt for purposes of federal income tax filings. HSAs are also tax exempt for most state income tax filings. However, some states do tax HSA contributions and even potentially the earnings and capital gains. Please consult your tax advisor regarding your state’s specific rules.

Who is Eligible for an HSA?

Any individual or employee can open and make contributions to an HSA, if they meet all of the following requirements:

Covered by a qualified


Not covered

by other health insuranceNot enrolled in MedicareAs of January 1, 2016, in the past 3 months, did not receive Veteran’s Administration benefits that were not connected to a service disabilityCan’t be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s tax returnChildren who are tax dependents cannot establish their own HSAsSpouses can establish their own HSAs, if eligibleNo income limits on who may contribute to an HSANo requirement of having earned income or being employed


Coordination Between Spouses

HSAs are

individual accounts

In general:

If both spouses meet the HSA eligibility requirements, both may open an individual HSA (optional).

If both spouses have self-only HDHP coverage, they can each establish an HSA and contribute up to the individual limit (2019: $3,500, 2020: 3,550).If one or both spouses has family HDHP coverage, they can each open an HSA but can only contribute up to the family maximum (2019: $7,000, 2020: $7,100), plus any applicable catch up contribution ($1,000 to each eligible HSA).A handout showing the various coverage scenarios is available.Qualified medical expenses of a spouse can be paid from your HSA, regardless of whether the spouse is HSA eligible themselves.If your spouse is the designated beneficiary, your HSA is treated as your spouse’s HSA after your death.


Covering Children

HDHPs allow coverage for children

up to age 26


If your child can be claimed as a dependent on anyone’s tax return s/he is not eligible to open or contribute to an HSA.

If your child is eligible to have been claimed as a dependent on your tax return, you may cover their qualified medical expenses from your HSA.Your child is eligible to open an HSA if s/he has no other health coverage except for qualified HDHPs (with the exceptions previously noted) AND is not ELIGIBLE to be claimed as a dependent on anyone else’s tax return.For example, if you have a family HDHP, your child could open their own HSA if they have no other health insurance coverage and are no longer qualified to be a dependent on your (or anyone else’s) tax return.This child would be able to contribute up to the family maximum.
