Question

What’s your favorite part about HSAs?



Answer

That HSAs can support your health and wealth. Once your HSA reaches a certain designated balance, you can choose to invest and grow a portion of your HSA dollars.

Question

What’s the biggest thing you learned about HSAs when you started with WEX?



Answer

HSAs were a health benefit that I was overlooking! They’re a great way to pay for medical expenses (tax exempt), and you can save what you don’t use for the future—even retirement. I break down a lot of my learnings in my Healthcare Benefits 101 blog post.

Question

What’s one thing you didn’t know about HSAs?



Answer

I didn’t know the range of things HSAs can cover—from copays and coinsurance, to routine healthcare and prescriptions, to over-the-counter items and hospital expenses. Plus, you can use HSAs to support the entire family.

Question

In what ways is an HSA better than a 401k?



Answer

HSAs allow you to contribute tax free, earn on interest and investments tax free, and cover medical expenses tax free. Plus, you can use your HSA at any time to cover eligible health expenses, unlike a 401K, which charges a fee for withdrawing before you turn 59.5 years old.
