Understanding your options with a Health Savings Account (HSA).
A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a great way to save money on health expenses you would normally pay out of pocket. That’s because your annual contributions are tax deductible, so you wind up paying less for any medical expenses paid for with your HSA.

The HSA then simply covers the qualified medical expenses you are charged before the deductible is met.
