New for FY24 – Employer Funded Health Savings Accounts (HSA)
Health Savings Accounts (HSA) are a way employees AND employers to contribute pre-tax dollars to an account to pay for health care expenses. Best of all, these funds belong to the employees; there is no “use it or lose it”.
How do you know if you are eligible?
- You must be enrolled in the High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)
- You cannot be covered by any other health plan (e.g., Medicare, Medicaid, spouse’s employer-sponsored non-HDHP plan, etc.)
- You cannot participate in the regular Health Care FSA but you can participate in the Limited Purpose Health Care FSA.

- Seeing your own Primary Care Physician (PCP), Specialist or Counselor via telephone or video subject to copay and coinsurance of the plan in which you are enrolled.
