Health Savings Accounts

A Solution for Managing High Deductibles

As deductibles increase, helping employees prepare for out-of-pocket medical expenses should be top of mind. But, finding the right solution isn’t always easy. From fees to administrative changes, implementing new solutions, like a Health Savings Account (HSA), can be difficult.

American Fidelity offers a better way. As a third-party carrier, we provide HSA administration independent of your medical provider. You can change medical carriers at any time—without switching HSA providers. And, your employees will be able to keep the same account.

We know education is key. That’s why our experienced account managers provide year-round education and are committed to helping you and your employees understand their accounts.

HSA Features

Stand-Alone Accounts

Our HSAs are not tied to a medical carrier, increasing your flexibility.

Pre-Tax Contributions

Funds are taken from employees’ paychecks before tax.

Tax-Free Distributions

When used for qualified medical expenses, distributions are not taxed.

Individually Owned

Employees own their account and can take it with them if they leave employment.

HSA Versus FSA

When it comes to reimbursement accounts, the differences can be confusing. Healthcare Flexible Spending Accounts, Dependent Care Accounts, Health Reimbursement Arrangements, and Health Savings Accounts aren’t all the same.

Each has its pros and cons, and not every solution is right for your business. For a list of important differences, download our printable chart.
