You have decided to jump on the consumer-driven healthcare bandwagon. The choice was quite clear for you as you see the fantastic value in using tax-free dollars to pay for medical expenses for both yourself and your family. It’s kind of a no-brainer.
What may not be so clear, is who to use as your HSA administrator.
You know you need to open an account, start making deposits and getting the maximum benefits out of your HSA . You want to be able to trust that your account is being handled properly. We can help make the choice crystal clear.
Consider the following:
How long has the company, bank, or credit union been handling HSAs?
American Health Value has been taking care of health savings accounts and their owners since 1996. We treat our members with respect and call many of them our friends. Our custodian bank has assets in excess of $3 billion. This means your money is safe.
How do I access my money?
If you are a member with us, your account is opened in your name and you can use a debit card or checks to make purchases. Your funds are not mingled with other account holders and you have 100% percent control of your money at all times. If you are looking at an administrator that also does FSAs and/or HRAs, your money may be pooled with other accounts.
