Health Savings Account (HSA)

A health savings account (HSA) is a tax-advantaged account for people who are enrolled in a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). Money is contributed pre-tax and accumulates each year that you’re enrolled—no expiration.

HSAs are used to pay for eligible health expenses, including some dental and vision costs. For more information about eligible expenses, read this article from the IRS.

If your HSA is managed by Gusto, visit your Gusto Benefits Card Manager portal to review transactions, claims, and more.

Note for employers: In order to purchase and provide a Health Savings Account through Gusto, you must first have medical insurance managed by Gusto.
