Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) If you participate in the high deductible health plan (HDHP), you can set aside money in a Health Savings Account (HSA) before taxes are deducted to pay for eligible medical, dental and vision expenses. An HSA is similar to a FSA in that you are eligible to pay for health care expenses with pre-tax dollars. Advantages of an HSA Unused money is not forfeited at the end of the year and is carried forward. The account is yours to keep so that you can take it with you if you change jobs or retire. If you have any money remaining after your retirement, you may withdraw it as cash. H.S.A. dollars can be used to pay qualified medical expenses for yourself and family members.
Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) The maximum amount that you can contribute to an HSA in 2012 is $3,100 for individual coverage and $6,250 for family coverage. If you reach age 55 or older before the end of the year, you may make additional “catch-up” contributions of $1,000
