HSA and FSAs
Healthcare Saving account - Must be enrolled in the Consumer Choice HSA Plan to be able to select this plan. A healthcare Saving Account (HSA) is a type of personal savings account that helps you save money for many out-of-pocket medical expenses like doctor visits, vision and dental care, and prescriptions. Unlike a FSA, money left in your HSA rolls over from year to year.
