There’s no doubt that health care costs and insurance premiums continue to increase. The burden of paying for healthcare can weigh heavy on a budget. To help keep costs down many employers and individuals are switching to high deductible health insurance plans.
If you have a high deductible health insurance plan then you may also want to consider a Health Savings Account (HSA).
There are several advantages to purchasing a health savings account:
- It allows you to pay for out-of-pocket medical expenses using tax-free dollars.
- Once the money goes into the account, it grows tax-free.
- Money goes in pretax or contributions are tax-deductible.
Your Account Can Build Over Time.
- Unspent funds can stay in your account from year-to-year. No fear of the “use or loose it” factor. You can even invest the money and earn interest on it.
Reference to the tax-free dollars refers to both state & federal taxes.
“He who has health, has hope;
And he who has hope, has everything.”
— Thomas Carlyle
