HSA Day 2021- How Health Savings Accounts Are Beneficial to Employers & Employees

No matter your experience with Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), HSA Day 2021 has something for you! Wex Health will be hosting its annual HSA Day virtual event on National HSA Awareness Day, Friday, October 15. This annual event is a day to learn about the value HSAs can bring to employees. We’re inviting you (and your HR team!) to celebrate HSA Day.

We’re bringing healthcare benefits and financial experts together with the public to discuss the power of healthcare savings accounts and why they’re the most convenient, flexible, and reliable way to meet your healthcare and savings goals.

What is an HSA?

An Health Savings Account is a tax-advantaged savings account for those enrolled in a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). With an HSA, you can take the money you’re saving by having a lower deductible and set it aside tax-free into an account. The money in the account can be spent tax-free on a variety of health-related expenses, including routine checkups, dental care, vision care, Prescriptions, and even over-the-counter items such as cholesterol monitors, diabetic testing supplies, medicines, and first aid products.

An HSA is owned by the employee, and any HSA balance rolls over from year to year. Therefore, you never have to worry about losing it. After your account reaches a designated balance, you can invest some of the money to grow it even faster and build a nest egg for your family’s future.
