What is a Health Savings Account (HSA)?

It is a tax-advantaged medical savings account for participants in a qualifying high-deductible health plan (HDHP).

Step 1

When a participant enrolls, they or their employer can contribute funds from their paycheck tax-free!

Step 1

A participant can choose to use those tax-free funds to pay for eligible medical expenses, save for retirement, and/or invest.

Pay. Save. Invest.

With an HSA, participants can pay for healthcare expenses, save for the future, and/or invest to build wealth. No matter what a participant needs, partners can build a custom, simplified HSA offering with WEX.

Pay for Healthcare Expenses

With WEX, participants can easily spend their funds on medical expenses, track costs, and manage reimbursements in one platform, using one mobile app, with ONE debit card for all of their health, wellness, and commuter benefits.
