Health Savings Account (HSA)
Eligible employees - full-time and part-time: Faculty, Classified, Managerial, Academic Professionals, and Confidential employees who are eligible for participation in the PCC health plans and enroll in Moda Medical Plan H.
An HSA is a tax-advantaged account established to pay for qualified medical expenses for those who are covered under a High Deductible Health Plan (Moda Medical Plan H). With money from this account, you pay for healthcare expenses until your deductible is met. Then, in accordance with the terms of your healthcare plan, your insurance company pays for covered expenses in excess of your deductible. Any unused funds are yours to retain in your HSA and accumulate toward your future healthcare expenses or your retirement.
You must file U.S. taxes to be eligible for an HSA. You are not eligible for an HSA if you are Medicare eligible, on Tricare, if you have received veteran’s benefits in the last three months, or if you can be claimed on someone else’s taxes. You may not participate in the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) program for health related expenses while enrolled in an HSA.
If you have dual medical coverage, both of your plans must be High Deductible Health Plans.
