The Health Savings Account (HSA) allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible expenses. By contributing to a HSA you reduce your taxable income, so you pay less in taxes — which saves you money.

HSA IRS Maximums are as follows:
$3,650 for a single contract
$7,300 for a two person or family
$1,000 "Catch Up" contribution for those age 55+
