How does an HSA work?
You simply deposit your funds into an interest-bearing account here with TruPoint Bank through either payroll deduction (pre-tax), or by mailing in a check (post tax). You may then use those funds to pay for qualified medical expenses below your insurance deductible, as well as co-insurance requirements after your deductible is met, and even qualified expenses not covered by your health plan. Unused funds simply roll over into the next year. You never lose your HSA contributions; they just keep accumulating and earning interest. Your money is ready whenever you need it, today or some point in the future.
