A health savings account (HSA) is an account that you can use to pay for certain health care expenses. To open an HSA, you must be enrolled in a qualified high-deductible health plan or HDHP. This means your deductible is at least $1,300 if you have insurance for only you, or $2,600 if you have insurance for yourself and your family.
If you are enrolled in a high-deductible health insurance plan (HDHP) as defined by the IRS, you can qualify for an HSA. You cannot open an HSA if:
- You have other health coverage that helps you pay for health care expenses before your deductible is met.
- You or your spouse has a flexible spending account (FSA) or health reimbursement arrangement (HRA).
- You also have Medicare or TRICARE.
- Someone else can claim you as a dependent.
- You have used Veterans Affairs hospital or medical services in the three months prior to opening your HSA, unless it was for a disability related to your military service.
