Health Savings Account (HSA)

A personal account for healthcare spending, saving, and investing

Overview & Eligibility

What is a Health Savings Account?

High-deductible health plan participants use a health savings account to save tax-free earnings to pay for qualified medical expenses. It can be used to pay for current medical expenses or invested and saved for later.

In short, a health savings account is a personal account for saving and investing. Employees can contribute pre-taxed earnings to their HSA to pay for current or future medical expenses such as copays, deductibles, over-the-counter medications, and prescriptions. 

There is no use it or lose it rule for an HSA, and the balance carries over from year to year. So, it can continue to grow, is available when needed, and can also be invested. An HSAs tax-free growth can be an added asset in planning for retirement. 

Only employees enrolled in an HSA-qualifying high-deductible health plan (HDHP) can enroll in an HSA, and employers receive FICA tax savings for every employee who contributes to an HSA.

20+ Investment Options

An Ameriflex HSA provides participants more options to maximize their financial savings and growth. Participants can choose to invest a portion of their HSA funds in a variety of 20+ mutual funds. 

No Hidden Fees

We don’t believe participants should have to pay extra fees to reach their full savings potential. By eliminating hidden fees, participants keep more of their hard-earned money for current and future health needs.


$500 Investment Threshold

While many HSA administrators require a $2,000+ account balance before funds can be invested, Ameriflex has a modest $500 investment balance requirement, allowing participants to invest their money faster.

The annual HSA contribution limits are subject to inflation each year. Catch-up contributions can be made by individuals 55 or older in addition to the annual contribution limit.
