New account holder checklist
By opening an HSA, you've taken the first step to take charge of health costs. Now, let's learn more about how to use your HSA.
Make the most of your HSA
Let's learn the basics
A health savings account (HSA) is a triple tax-advantaged account that helps you pay for qualified medical expenses from bandages to braces, and contacts to chiropractors. 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? 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.
Pay the smarter way
The easiest way to shop and pay for qualified expenses is with your HSA card. Simply check out online or in store and the money automatically comes out of your pre-tax account, giving you automatic savings. It’s like having a 30%* off coupon every time you use your card.
Don't leave home without your HSA
Life is always in motion. By adding your HSA card to your digital wallet, you can rest easy knowing that your HSA card is always with you for unexpected expenses.
Pay the smarter way
