Health Savings Accounts
Rising costs of medical and healthcare expenses are a concern for many people today. Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) were established by the Medicare bill by President Bush on December 8, 2003 and were designed to help members* save for qualified medical and healthcare costs on a tax-free basis.
Benefits to Members include:
|Tax deductions for contributions|
|Contributions can grow in the account for years|
|Dividends in the account are tax-free|
|Account belongs to the member|

Federal credit unions may offer qualified members the opportunity to establish a Health Savings Account, and Houston Federal Credit Union has been offering these valuable accounts since 2006. According to the Medicare bill, members are eligible for HSAs if they are enrolled in a high deductible health plan of at least $1,350 if individual and $2,700 if a family plan with out-of-pocket expenses not to exceed $6,750 for individual and $13,500 for a family plan.
