SCREENSHOT OF THE HSA HOMEPAGE DASHBOARD
A CLOSER LOOK AT YOUR DASHBOARD FEATURES
At first glance, you will see your HSA account and your investment balance, if you have chosen that option.
By clicking on the individual account type, you are taken to your transaction history. Here you can view a ledger of items that may be in process such as deposits waiting to clear, pending payments or a debit card transaction that is not yet completed. Depending on the status of your activity, you are provided with your calculated "Current Available Balance", which is always the most accurate account balance.
In addition, you can view year-to-date contributions (deposits) and distributions (payments) and with a click on either category, you are instantly transported to the details of your transactional history.
Pay Doctor/Provider: One click takes you to the payment wizard that will walk you through the various bill pay options and help you decide how you want to treat a particular claim. For example, you can choose what account you want your payment to come out from. You can decide whether you want to enter the claim and send payment, or just enter the claim without sending payment. You can add a new provider, or click on an existing provider you previously entered. You are also able to categorize the expense, and add details to keep your bookkeeping records up-to-date. You have the ability to review your transaction details before authorizing any payments to be sent from your HSA.
Request Reimbursement: Clicking on this link takes you back into the payment wizard, this time walking you through the process for reimbursements from your HSA. You can set up a one-time repayments or schedule recurring reimbursements by number of payments, amount and date. As with payments out of your HSA to third-party medical providers, you are also able to view/edit details to accurately validate the transaction before authorizing payments to yourself.
TIP: If you do not have sufficient funds accumulated in your HSA account, you can pay from another account such as your personal checking or savings account and setup the reimbursement through this Quick Link.
Make Contribution: This link takes you into the contribution wizard, where you will be guided through various options explicit to depositing funds into your HSA through an EFT (electronic fund transfer).
You can expect the same intuitive guidance experienced in payments and reimbursements such as, the ability to choose what external bank account the contribution comes from, designating what tax year the deposit should be associated with, and including the date and amount of deposit. Recurring monthly deposits can also be scheduled.
Transaction History: This link is fairly straightforward in that it allows you to review all your contribution and distribution history. You will see your transaction details including date, category (contribution or distribution), balance, and more.
In addition, you have the ability to drill down on an individual payment by simply clicking on it. This can be very handy if, for example, you receive a phone call from a provider about a payment. You can quickly access your transaction history, identify the payment and click on it to review the details.
Investments: One of many benefits associated with an HSA ownership, is the option to invest your HSA dollars for a higher rate of return. Interest earned on your HSA funds are tax-free.

Keeping your HSA records accurate and up-to-date is conveniently done in your Documentation Library within the HSA Member Portal. Your "To Do" List located on the Homepage Dashboard provides important alerts and reminders of action steps that have not been completed such as, claims requiring payment, receipts not yet linked to an invoice, plus any unread messages within the message center. Below are the classifications associated with the links in the "To Do" List section.
Unresolved Claims: At a glance, you are notified of any outstanding claims that have to be addressed. One click navigates you to the "Claims" section of your HSA Member Portal with the ability to view, edit, add, or even make a payment. You also have the ability to download your ledger of medical expenses into an Excel spreadsheet. Perfect at tax time!
Unlinked Receipts/Docs: This link transports you into your HSA Documentation Library where you can track your healthcare expenses that your "To Do" List follows. You simply click on the item you want to address with the ability to assign it to a claim, or make any necessary edits and updates. You can also add a new item and view all linked medical documentation you have already uploaded.
Unread Messages: Notifies you that you have unread messages and alerts. One click takes you into the "Message Center" where messages are displayed either as new or read.
