Health Savings Accounts - Getting Started
As an individual account-holder, you must first determine your eligibility to establish a health savings account. Consult your tax advisor to be sure, but eligibility points to consider include:
You must have a qualified high deductible health plan (HDHP) in place prior to opening your HSA. We can help you find insurance companies that will help you obtain your HDHP.
You cannot have additional major-medical health insurance that does not meet the requirements of an HDHP, be entitled to receive benefits under Medicare, or claimed as a dependent on another's tax return.
- Because it is your responsibility to determine your eligibility, we strongly urge you to confirm your eligibility with your tax accountant, attorney, or your insurance company's benefits consultant prior to opening an account.
