HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNT (HSA)

The County’s Maximum Value Plan also offers a Health Savings Account (HSA). An HSA is a personal savings account you can use to pay for qualified out-of-pocket medical expenses with pretax dollars. Both you (through pretax funds from your paycheck) and the county (through Virgin Pulse wellness dollars) are able to make contributions to your account, but you own and control the account.

Contributions are not taxed, and you can invest the balance in a variety of options. Your account (including interest and investment earnings) grows tax-free and as long as the funds are used to pay for qualified medical expenses, they are spent tax-free.

You can use the money in your HSA to pay for qualified medical expenses now or in the future. Your HSA can be used for your expenses and those of your spouse/domestic partner and dependents even if they are not covered on the HDHP.

You are eligible to open and fund an HSA if you:

  • Are enrolled in an HSA-Eligible HDHP
  • Are not covered by other non-high deductible health plans, such as your spouse’s health plan, Health Care Flexible spending Account, or Health Reimbursement Account
  • Are not eligible to be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s tax return
  • Are not enrolled in Medicare
  • Have not received Veterans Administration benefits
