Premier Financial Credit Union offers a variety of Health Savings Accounts.
You must meet certain requirements to be eligible for an HSA (Health Savings Account); most importantly, you must be covered under a high deductible health plan (HDHP). An HDHP generally has lower premiums than other types of health plans, but also has higher deductibles. Until your deductible is met, you must pay for all your medical expenses - expect for preventive care, which is almost always covered. Assuming your HDHP is HSA - compatible, you can use your HSA assets to pay for these expenses.
