A Health Savings Account makes it easy to manage contributions and pay for monthly medical expenses with checks or a personalized 'Photo' Check Card. Your HSA can be used to cover small and routine medical expenses until your deductible is met. Contact your First Century Bank representative to find out if a Health Saving Account is right for you.
To be eligible for an HSA you must be covered by a qualified high deductible health plan (HDHP), below Medicare eligibility age, and not covered by any other health plans. You cannot be claimed as a dependant on someone else’s tax return.
