An HSA is like no other savings account. The money goes in on a pre-taxed basis through payroll contributions, grows income tax-free and comes out income tax-free when you use it for qualified medical expenses. Plus, you can carry over unused available funds from year to year and the account is yours to keep even if you change jobs, change health plans or retire.
