Health Savings Account

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are designed to benefit people with high-deductible health plans (HDHP).* They are a great way to save for health care expenses, with the added benefit of excellent tax savings and reduced health care costs.

The contributions are tax deductible and earnings grow on a tax-deferred basis, and if the funds are used for an eligible medical expense, the funds are tax-free. Funds roll over from year to year, and funds used after age 65 are able to be used tax-free for eligible medical expenses or at your normal tax rate for any other reason.

This account has many of the same benefits as the Medical Savings Account (MSA) but without the restrictions.

Advantages of HSAs:

Security - Your high deductible insurance and HSA protect you against high or unexpected medical bills.

Affordability - You should be able to lower your health insurance premiums by switching to health insurance coverage with a higher deductible.

Flexibility - You can use the funds in your account to pay for current medical expenses, including expenses that your insurance may not cover, or save the money in your account for future needs, such as:

    • Health insurance or medical expenses if unemployed
    • Medical expenses after retirement (before Medicare)
    • Out-of-pocket expenses when covered by Medicare
    • Long-term care expenses and insurance.

Control - You make all the decisions about:

    • How much money to put into the account**
    • Whether to save the account for future expenses or pay current medical expenses
    • Which medical expenses to pay from the account
    • Which financial institution/company will hold the account
    • Whether to invest any of the money in the account
    • Which investments to make

Probability - Accounts are completely portable, meaning you can keep your HSA even if you:

    • Change jobs
    • Change your medical coverage
    • Become unemployed
    • Move to another state
    • Change your marital status

Ownership - Funds remain in the account from year to year, just like an IRA. There are no "use it or lose it" rules for HSAs.

Tax Savings - An HSA provides you triple tax savings:

    • Tax deductions when you contribute to your account;
    • Tax-free earnings through investment; and,
    • Tax-free withdrawals for qualified medical expenses.

ACH Origination The Paper Alternative

A good alternative to writing and receiving paper checks is Automated Clearing House (ACH) transactions. The State Bank of Cross Plains can help you set up a system to originate such transactions and complete the 
electronic process through the Federal Reserve Bank system.

  • Commonly used for direct deposit of employee payroll and benefits
  • Direct payment to suppliers (often using recurring dollar amounts)

Almost all financial institutions in the United States are eligible to receive such transactions for their customersí 
accounts.

While you can create your own ACH file work, the bank can receive the data either by diskette or modem for entry into the ACH system. The fee for such services can be found in our current Business Fees brochure.
