Gain more control over your health care costs with a Health Savings Account (HSA). If you are currently enrolled in a high-deductible health plan, KeyPoint's Health Savings Account can help you better manage your expenses.
One of the major benefits of a Health Savings Account is the tax advantage, which allows you to use pre-tax dollars to cover future medical expenses. Your HSA contributions will also accumulate on a tax-deferred basis, and distributions from your account are tax-free if they are used for qualified medical expenses. Consult a California tax professional for details regarding your specific situation.

Any type of withdrawal that is made from your HSA using share drafts or ACH, Debit Cards (any type of withdrawal) will automatically be assumed to be a normal distribution and will be reported to the IRS as such. You must complete an HSA withdrawal form if there is an exception.
A negative balance in the HSA represents a loan from KeyPoint to the HSA, which is a prohibited transaction. As a result, if you initiate a transaction that overdraws your account, you agree to make immediate payment of any overdrafts together with any service charges to KeyPoint. These charges will not be included in the distribution amounts reported to the IRS annually. In the event of repeated overdrafts, KeyPoint may terminate all services under this agreement.
If the HSA owner elects to make contributions through payroll deduction and/or automatic transfer, the payroll deduction/automatic transfer received, will be allocated as a current year contribution.
The HSA owner is solely responsible for making sure that all HSA contributions are within the limits set by the tax laws and that the aggregate contribution per tax year will not exceed the maximum amount allowed by the IRS.
