Save money with an HSA

If you have a BlueSolutions plan, you can start a health savings account (HSA). Think of it like a retirement account for medical expenses. You can contribute money to your account and spend it now on qualified medical expenses. Or you can keep saving and investing your money and use it later in life.

It's your money. It’s your choice.

Here’s what you get with an HSA

  • More spending power. Since you’re using tax-exempt dollars for qualified medical, dental, and vision expenses, it’s like a built-in discount.
  • Tax savings. Money that goes into your HSA may lower your income tax at the end of the year. Discover the triple tax advantage.
  • Ease. Pay your medical bills with a debit card, checks, or directly online.
  • Flexibility. HSA funds roll over from one year to the next, and the balance can earn interest.
  • Portability. Your HSA remains yours whether you are self-employed, change jobs, or retire.
  • Convenience. Manage your HSA, including paying bills, viewing transactions, and scheduling contributions online.
