Health Savings Account (HSA)

Bankers Trust offers health savings accounts (HSA), which is a savings account that can be used to complement your health insurance plan and out-of-pocket costs. For individuals who have a high deductible health plan, an HSA may offer significant tax benefits related to paying qualified medical expenses – and may provide benefits similar to many tax-favored retirement plans.*

Our bankers can help you determine if you could benefit from an HSA. Find a branch or contact us to learn more.

Health Savings Account FAQs

  • What is a Health Savings Account (HSA)?

    A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a medical savings account available to taxpayers who are enrolled in a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). You control this money, not your employer or insurance company, and can use it on health care expenses. Another benefit is the funds in this account are not subject to federal income tax when they are deposited.

  • What is an HDHP and why do I need one?

    In the United States, a high-deductible health plan (HDHP) is a health insurance plan with lower premiums and higher deductibles than a traditional health plan. Being covered by an HDHP is a requirement for having a health savings account. 

  • Which contribution tax year should I choose?

    HSA contributions for any particular year may be made on, or before, the applicable tax filing deadline for such year (usually April 15). Until the applicable tax filing date for a particular year, you have the option of making additional HSA contributions and designating them to apply to such year. Remember, however, that you must not exceed the maximum statutory limits on yearly contributions. Please consult your tax advisor if you have questions. 

  • How many beneficiaries should I designate?
    You can choose not to designate any beneficiaries. We recommend you designate at least one primary beneficiary who will inherit your account assets in the event of your death. 

*Consult your tax advisor for tax benefits.
