Health Savings Accounts (HSA):

What is a Health Savings Account? 

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a plan designed to help you manage the rising cost of health care by allowing you to set aside money to pay for out-of-pocket medical expenses and to save for retirement. You can think of it as a personal savings account for medical expenses. HSAs are employee-owned accounts, meaning you take the HSA with you if you change employers. Unused funds will earn interest and can be invested until they are withdrawn for eligible expenses or at retirement  If you choose the KE12 High Deductible Health Care Plan, you may be eligible to have a Health Savings Account (HSA).

What is a Flexible Savings Account? 

A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is a plan allows you to set aside money to pay for out-of-pocket medical or dependent care expenses. Here’s how it works: you set aside money in your account before you pay taxes on it. When you set aside money in a FSA, you lower the amount of income the government will tax, so you pay fewer taxes each year.
