Navigating Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)

Today, we’re exploring the world of Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and diving into the specific benefits of using an HSA through CCB.

What is an HSA account?

An HSA is like a versatile piggy bank that helps you save and pay for healthcare expenses while scoring some additional tax benefits. Contributions are pre-tax, they grow tax-free, and withdrawals for qualified medical expenses are tax-free – talk about a triple tax threat in your favor!
