#LOVEMYHSA

National HSA Awareness Day unites the public and healthcare benefits industry to discuss the power of health savings accounts (HSAs) and their impact in fighting prevalent healthcare issues facing Americans today, including managing health-related out-of-pocket expenses, preparing for unexpected healthcare costs, and planning for retirement.


Take a moment to connect with Jean Chatzky, host of HerMoney podcast and educational ambassador for HSA Day, about why HSAs are so important. From tackling rising healthcare costs to planning for retirement, HSAs are powerful savings tools. And register today to join Jean and “people like you” panelists to help you learn more about HSAs.



Understanding and selecting health benefits can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) and health savings accounts (HSAs). If you’ve ever wanted someone like you to talk about your options with—e.g., a friend who really “knows their stuff”—you’ve come to the right place. We’d like to introduce you to the National HSA Awareness Day panelists who will be putting their HSA knowledge and experience to work to help more people learn more about health savings accounts (HSAs) on October 15, 2019.

Meet Rebecca Dunlap and find out why she #LOVESMYHSA! Having done her own research to “get smart” about HSAs, Rebecca has great insight into how they work and why they’re valuable.

Meet Eduardo (Eddie) Medelli and find out why he #LOVESMYHSA! Eddie enrolled in an HSA as soon as he was hired by his current employer. He admits he didn’t know much about his health savings account, other than that his employer contributed to it every year. “I was like, ‘Oh—free money? Where is this coming from? I’ll take it. I’ll use it!’” he laughs.

Meet Dave Jochnau and find out why he #LOVESMYHSA! In addition to the financial perks of an HSA, Dave sees value in having a dedicated space to set aside money for both planned and unplanned medical expenses. They happen every year—and Dave points out that “you never know what could possibly happen” with regards to an emergency. The more he learned, the clearer it became that an HSA was the right decision for Dave’s family.

WHY CHOOSE AN HSA?


Health savings accounts (HSAs) are a powerful way to leverage pre-tax savings to save and plan for out-of-pocket healthcare costs. Plus, they are a great way to save for retirement. It’s no wonder they are often described as a “rainy day fund” or a “security blanket”. Users of HSAs find peace in knowing that they’ve taken care of their families by putting away money from their paycheck in case something happens (and they feel good about the pre-tax savings, too). Wondering how much you could save with an HSA?

Five Reasons to Open an HSA


  1. Reduce your taxable income. Contributions qualify as a tax deduction and reduce your taxable income.

  2. Use tax-free money. The contributions are tax-free; when you spend your HSA money on IRS-qualified medical expenses, no taxes are due.

  3. Earn tax-free money for retirement. The interest earned on contributions is tax-free. Use the money for future medical expenses or retirement.

  4. Take it with you. Your contributions (and your employer’s) stay with you, even if you change jobs. There is no “use it or lose it” rule.

  5. Use it for anyone in your family. Even if you’re enrolled for single coverage, you can use your HSA to pay for medical expenses for your family.
