Health Savings Account FAQs

Health Savings Account FAQs

View All HSA FAQs

Your debit card is accepted at any medical service/product provider (e.g., doctor’s offices, pharmacies, medical supply stores). This cannot be used as an ATM card. Your card should only be used to pay for qualified medical expenses. If you use the card to pay for non-qualified medical expenses, you may be subject to income tax on those funds and IRS penalties.

There are no limits on the number of transactions per day. However, PIN and signature-based transactions cannot exceed $2,000 per day.

You are eligible for HSA contributions if you:

  • Are covered under a high-deductible health plan (HDHP)
  • Are not also covered by any other health plan that is not an HDHP (with certain exceptions for plans providing preventive care and limited types of permitted insurance and permitted coverage)
  • Are not enrolled in Medicare
  • Cannot be claimed as a dependent on another individual’s tax return

Note: A spouse can have single coverage under an HSA, if they are not covered under the other spouse’s plan. The account however, is for the individual covered under the HSA qualified plan only. Your insurance provider must be able to verify that your plan is a qualified HDHP.

HSA rules are determined at the federal level. Individuals may be eligible under state guidelines (domestic partners, civil unions, etc.) for qualified health insurance coverage, but not eligible to open the savings account portion of the plan.

If you are eligible, you can establish an HSA in much the same way you would establish an IRA – with a qualified custodian. Each year, you are responsible for determining your allowable annual HSA contribution and whether you have qualified medical expenses eligible for reimbursement with nontaxable HSA distributions. (include chart from HSA brochure) Additionally, a “catch-up” contribution is available for eligible individuals who are age 55 or older by the end of their taxable year and have not enrolled in Medicare. If you meet the eligibility requirements for an HSA, you, your employer, your family members, and any other person (including non-individuals) may contribute to your HSA. This is true whether you are self-employed or unemployed.
