A Health Savings Account is a tax-advantaged account which allows you to pay for your eligible out-of-pocket health care costs using pre-tax dollars – meaning you save money.
You’re offered a Health Savings Account – administered by Health Equity – if you select the Advantage Plan. You can use your account to pay for health expenses in the current plan year or roll it over for use in the future.
