With all the controversy and questionable future of the coverages offered by the Affordable Care Act, many people are considering new options and looking for tips on trying to save money on health insurance. Health Savings Accounts (HSA) are one interesting option to save money using health care plans.
Customers like HSA because they are a special tax-free savings account that can be used to save money for medical expenses when the person is enrolled in a qualified high deductible health care plan. HSA can also double as a savings vessel because the money in the plan can be withdrawn later if it is not used for medical expenses. Health Savings Accounts have many benefits and can double as a savings vessel for you if you do not use the money in the plan for medical expenses.
But the extent to which your Instituion must service account holders, plus your Institution's ability to navigate regulatory requirements, may determine if you can seize the opportunity to attract new deposits and deepen business banking relationships by offering HSA.
