Today’s healthcare environment is challenging for just about anyone needing healthcare (which is all of us, right?). A lot of people are experiencing higher premiums and reduced coverage from their health insurance plans. If that’s you, a Health Savings Account (or HSA) is a great way to save pre-tax dollars for all kinds of healthcare expenses.
An HSA is a medical savings account that gives you more freedom to make your own healthcare decisions. It works like a checking account that’s just for qualified medical expenses — you make deposits into it like you would any other account, and then you can withdraw the funds in-person, write a check, or use our special HSA debit card to pay for qualified healthcare expenses and receive tax benefits.1 You can also make transfers into the account and easily access your funds via mobile banking, online banking, and 24/7 telephone banking.
You can choose a single or family program, based on your needs, and use the money in your HSA to pay for qualified medical expenses allowed by federal tax law. This usually includes most medical, dental, hearing, and vision expenses, as well as prescription drugs. Avadian can't offer you affordable surgery or bionic limbs — yet — but our HSA can give you the control and flexibility that takes some of the sting out of healthcare spending.
