At Greater Pittsburgh Insurance Consultants, Inc., we know that like most people, you depend on your income to pay bills, put food on the table, and provide for your family.

Policies can vary greatly depending on the individual, and the duration and amount for which you are reimbursed are determined by the nature of the disabling accident.

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are a newer alternative to Health Insurance and are meant for those who are insured under high-deductible Health Insurance plans. These plans allow individuals to set aside money into a savings account that they can use over time for medical expenses that are not covered under their high-deductible plan. With a standard HSA, you can do the following.
- Put money into your HSA (tax-free)
- Watch your money grow (tax-free)
- Take out money if needed for qualified medical expenses, including dental and vision (also tax-free)
ADVANTAGES OF HSAS
With a Health Savings Account, you get to control the amount of money that you wish to set aside for medical expenses. All deposits, growth, and withdrawals are all tax-free for your convenience, and most important, your money rolls over each year. Unlike flexible spending accounts, you don’t lose money when your policy renews. Whatever you put into your HSA keeps growing, tax-free.
Although there are limits to the amount of money in which you can deposit to your Health Savings Account each year, as well as qualifications, it’s a great way to help you have a lower premium, supply you with medical coverage if necessary, and help you save for your future medical needs.
