Health Savings Accounts

A DFDFCU Health Savings Account (HSA) is an alternative way to save for medical expenses and pay for health care costs. If your insurance policy is a High Deductible Health Plan (often referred to as an HDHP), you can save for qualified medical expenses-doctor visits, prescriptions, dental care and more-and do it tax-free.*

Key Features:

  • No account set-up fee or monthly fee
  • Interest earning account starting at $0
  • Tax –deductible contributions
  • Withdrawals for qualified medical expenses and dividends are both tax-free
  • No annual spending requirement
  • Debit card for easy payment

What you need to open a new HSA:

  • Current health plan details (Provider Name, Deductible Amount, Policy Effective Date)
  • Beneficiary Information (Name, Address, Social Security Number or Date of Birth)

Certain conditions must be met before a Health Savings Account (HSA) can be opened. Please check with the Internal Revenue Service for specific questions and details.

What do you need to rollover or transfer an existing HSA?

  • Name of originating institution
  • Any related account numbers
