Learn more about an HSA
Life has its surprises, but with an Optum Bank HSA, paying for qualified medical expenses won't be one of them. Learn more about the benefits of an HSA.
Save money and save on taxes
Keep Uncle Sam out of your pocketbook. The money you contribute to your HSA goes in, grows and comes out income tax free when used for qualified medical expenses. You know you're going to need it — so why not save on taxes, too?
Pay the fast way with your HSA card
Your HSA card fast-tracks your payments and lets you skip the paperwork — all while saving you 30%* by using HSA dollars. Use it online, in store or at your doctor. Learn more.
Combine your HSAs
Already have a health savings account (HSA) with another HSA provider? Save time by combining your HSAs into a single account with Optum Bank. It's easy to do. Learn more.
There is no "use-it-or-lose-it" rule
You get to keep the money in your HSA, no matter what, even if you change jobs or move off a qualifying high-deductible health plan. When you, your employer or anyone else makes a contribution to your HSA, it stays there so you can use it when you need it.
It's a family affair
You can use your HSA to pay for the qualified medical expenses of anyone you claim on your taxes, even if you're only enrolled with single coverage. This is a great way to plan for unexpected medical expenses — from your deductible to an ER visit — for the whole family.
Invest your HSA dollars
In addition to contributing to your 401(k), you can also invest your HSA dollars to help grow your balance. Unlike a 401(k), when you use HSA funds for qualified medical expenses, it’s always 100% income tax-free. Learn more about our investment options.
Start planning for retirement
An HSA is a great tool to help you prepare for future health care costs and retirement. After turning 65, you can use your HSA funds for non-qualified expenses, like a boat or an exotic vacation. You’ll pay ordinary income tax on those funds, but the 20% tax penalty no longer applies. As you're planning for the future, your HSA can ease your mind and prepare you for retirement by saving money income tax free.
Save up to 30% with your HSA-FSA card
Your HSA-FSA card is the fastest and most convenient way to pay for qualified expenses like bandages, braces, chiropractors and more. Plus, you save up to 30% since you’re using pretax dollars.*
