How an HSA works: An HSA paired with an HSA-powered health plan allows you to make pre-tax contributions to an FDIC-insured savings account. Balances earn tax-free interest and can be used to pay for qualified medical expenses. HSA-powered health plans cost much less than traditional plans and the money saved can be deposited into your HSA.
