HSA features

  • Tax benefits
    Contributions you make are tax deductible, withdrawals to pay for qualified medical expenses are tax free, and earnings are tax free. As long as you use the money in your account for qualified medical expenses, your earnings are never taxed.
  • Payment options
    Pay for qualified medical expenses on the spot with your HSA debit card or HSA checks.
  • Keep your balance
    There's no "use it or lose it" rule – the money in your account carries over from year to year.
  • Account options
    Choose the account that's right for you. With an investment HSA, account owners can designate some of their money for investing or you can choose a standard HSA.

Investment HSA transition information

Everence investment HSAs are soon moving to be record-kept by our partner, Devenir. All transactions – such as changing funds, rebalancing or moving money – will be done through an updated web portal. This portal will interact seamlessly with Everence to move monies between your savings and investment account. 

More information about this transition was mailed to members at the end of Oct., but more information is available below.

Fee for service

The previously charged $3 monthly fee will be eliminated with these new enhancements. However, an annual fee of one-half percent (0.50%), with a $10 minimum and a $500 maximum annual fee, will be charged. 

New mutual funds

The list of available mutual funds is expanding. You can continue to invest in Environmental, Social and Governance funds (ESG funds), or if you wish to invest in unscreened funds this will now be an option. Please download the 'HSA investment options" table or learn more on the 'fund performance dashboard.'

FAQs

HSA frequently asked questions

How much can I contribute to my HSA each year?

The type of coverage (individual or family) you have under your qualified high-deductible health plan determines how much you may contribute to your HSA. The maximum annual contribution limit for an account owner with single coverage is $3,550 for calendar year 2020 and $3,600 for calendar year 2021. The maximum annual contribution limit for an account owner with family coverage is $7,100 for calendar year 2020 and $7,200 for calendar year 2021.

What expenses can I pay for with HSA money?

Eligible medical expenses are what you pay for certain types of medical care1 for yourself, your spouse and your dependents – to the extent such amounts are not covered by insurance or otherwise reimbursed. IRS Publication 502 lists many of the expenses for medical care (as defined under Section 213(d) of the Code) that are eligible for reimbursement from an HSA.
