Health Savings Account

Health Savings Accounts (HSA) with First Bank is a great tool to help you save for future medical expenses. 

There are certain advantages to saving money in your HSA account.  This can include favorable tax savings, earned interest, and possible savings on insurance premiums. In addition, you control the funds, they provide long-term savings and they’re portable. Meaning the account stays with you as you move through life’s changes.

An HSA at First Bank is separate from your employer and insurance company, so changing jobs or insurance plans can be done without changing your HSA. This keeps things simple for you and gives you great flexibility for your future!

Who Can Have an HSA?

You can open and contribute to an HSA if you:
  • Are covered under a qualified HDHP (High Deductible Health Plan)
  • Are not covered by another health plan that is NOT an HDHP (certain exceptions apply)
  • Are not enrolled in medicare (any part)
  • Are not eligible to be claimed as a dependent on another individual’s federal income tax return
Any HSA funds used for anything other than "qualified medical expenses" are taxable as income and subject to an additional 20% tax penalty.
