HSA Qualified plans

These high-deductible health plans give members affordable coverage and the flexibility to choose any provider. They also help members save for future health care needs via a tax-advantaged health savings account. Members can keep this account even if they change employers.

Advantages for employers

  • Tax advantages, health care cost savings and flexibility
  • Savings on payroll taxes if employees contribute to their HSA accounts
  • Employees are motivated to make better health care decisions and use their health care dollars more prudently, ultimately lowering health costs over time

Advantages for employees

In addition to robust coverage, a HSA Qualified plan gives employees more flexibility and control over how they spend their health care dollars. They also get a triple tax advantage:

  • All contributions they make to their HSA accounts are pre-tax
  • Funds in their accounts earn tax-free interest
  • Withdrawals for qualified medical expenses are tax-free
