An HSA, or Health Savings Account, is a type of savings account that enables you to set aside funds, PRE-TAX, to pay for medical expenses that qualify. A few examples of qualified expenses are deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance, and others. One thing HSAs CAN NOT be used for is existing premiums for insurance policies.
