Health Savings Account (HSA)

Tools and Resources



WHAT IS A HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNT?


Employees who select the HSA Plan can receive, earn and save pre-tax contributions through a Health Savings Account (HSA).

The HSA is funded in three ways — by Emory's annual contribution, your participation in various wellness activities (incentives), and through optional contributions you make to the HSA.

What's Different About an HSA?

The HSA is only available if you participate in the HSA Plan. The money is yours, is held in an investment account and is portable — it goes with you to be used for qualified medical expenses if you leave Emory or when you retire.

If you are enrolled in the HSA Plan, you cannot participate in a general Healthcare Flexible Spending Account (FSA) but you can participate in the Limited Healthcare FSA for dental and vision, and for medical expenses once you have met your deductible.

If you are enrolled in the HSA Plan, you can still participate in the Dependent Day Care Flexible Spending Account.
