Health Savings Accounts

A Health Savings Account (HSA) allows you to pay for current health expenses and save for future qualified medical expenses and retiree health expenses on a tax-free basis. In order to establish an HSA, you must have a qualified High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). The IRS determines the guidelines for qualified HDHPs. The current guidelines are:


You are eligible for an HSA if you:

  • Are covered under an HDHP
  • Are not covered by any other health plan that is not an HDHP
  • Are not enrolled for benefits under Medicare
  • Are not eligible to be claimed as a dependent on another person’s tax return

Catch-up Contributions

If you are at least age 55 by the end of the calendar year and not covered by Medicare, you may also contribute an additional amount known as a “catch-up” contribution. For eligible individuals who are married and have family coverage, each spouse who is age 55 or older must make the catch-up contribution to his or her own HSA. The spouse must also be covered under the plan.
