National HSA Awareness Day Event Raises Awareness of Health Savings Accounts 


October 1st, 2019

National HSA Awareness Day, which will take place each year on October 15, is dedicated to bringing the public and the healthcare benefits industry together to discuss the power of HSAs and their ability to impact some of the most prevalent issues Americans face today, such as: managing health-related-out-of-pocket expenses, preparing for the unexpected healthcare costs, and planning for retirement.

Recent research from WEX Health, a leading financial technology service provider, shows that millions of consumers are still in the dark on the benefits of an HSA and are missing out on opportunities to both better prepare for healthcare costs and save for retirement. In fact, some American’s don’t event know HSAs exist, and many find HSAs–and employee benefit choices in general–to be confusing and complex. However, consumer enegagment and management tools from Gunn-Mowery, LLC make opening and contributing to an HSA easy and efficient.

Why Choose an HSA?

Health Saving Accounts (HSAs) are a powerful way to leverage pre-tax savings to save and plan for out-of-pocket healthcare costs. Plus, they are a great way to save for retirement. It’s no wonder they are often described as a “rainy day fund” or a “security blanket”. Users of HSAs find peace in knowing that they’ve taken care of their families by putting away money from their paycheck in case something happens (and they feel good about the pre-tax savings, too).

5 Reasons to Open an HSA 

  1. Reduce your taxable income. Contributions qualify as tax deduction and reduce your taxable income. 
  2. Use tax-free money. The contributions are tax-free; when you spend your HSA money on IRS-qualified medical expenses, no taxes are due. 
  3. Earn tax-free money for retirement. The interest earned on contributions is tax-free. Use the money for future medical expenses or retirement. 
  4. Take it with you. Your contributions (and your employer’s) stay with you, even if you change jobs. There is no “use it or lose it” rule. 
  5. Use it for anyone in your family. Even if your enrolled for single coverage, you can use your HSA to pay for medical expenses for your family.
