A healthy approach to medical expenses
Looking for a cure for high-deductible health plans (HDHPs)? If you have a HDHP, Health Savings Accounts (HSA) provide convenient, tax-advantaged solutions for making healthcare more affordable. Distributions from an HSA used to pay for qualified medical expenses are not taxed; neither is the interest you earn! Please consult your tax advisor for more information.
What are qualified medical expenses?
Qualified medical expenses are costs that would generally qualify for the medical and dental expenses deduction as explained in IRS Publication 502, Medical and Dental Expenses. Over-the-counter medicines (other than insulin) may also qualify as expenses for HSA purposes if you have a written prescription for them.
See IRS Publication 502 for a complete list of qualified medical expenses.
HSA qualifications and limits
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) sets contribution and HDHP limits for HSAs which may change each calendar year.
See IRS Publication 969 to learn more about HSAs, their benefits, qualifications, and limits.
