Health Savings Account (HSA)

  • A savings account that lets you set aside untaxed money to pay for qualified medical expenses, vision and dental care costs for you and your immediate family
  • Used for deductibles, copayments, coinsurance, some prescription and over-the-counter medications, long-term care expenses and others
  • Funds roll over year to year if they are not spent

 

Flexible Spending Account (FSA)

  • A special account you put untaxed money into throughout the year that you can use to pay for qualified out-of-pocket health care costs for medical, vision, and dental expenses for you and your immediate family
