An RCU Health Savings Account (HSA) provides flexibility and control over you and your family’s health care costs. HSA accounts are available to individuals who are covered under a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). Contributions are tax-deductible and can be used to pay for qualifying medical expenses such as co-payments, treatments, prescriptions, and more.

Benefits:

  • Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) allow your employer to make pre-tax contributions on your behalf
  • Your own HSA contributions are tax deductible, allowing you to save on medical expenses
  • Distributions may be tax-free when used for qualifying expenses
  • Funds carry over year after year, no "use it or lose it" provision
  • Use your RCU HSA Visa® debit cards to pay for qualifying medical expenses. Widely accepted with most health care providers
  • You can also use your HSA account to pay for healthcare with checks

2021 HSA Contribution Limits (can vary year to year):

  • Single Coverage: $3,550
  • Family Coverage: $7,100
  • Catch-Up Contributions: $1,000
