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 $1,300 if individual and $2,600 if a family plan with out-of-pocket expenses not to exceed $6,550 for individual and $13,100 for a family plan.
