What are the advantages of an HSA?

Tax Savings

Reduce your taxable income by the amount you deposit into your HSA. You don’t have to itemize your taxes to receive this benefit. You can contribute to your HSA up to the maximum IRS contribution limits less the Roper St. Francis contribution. Any dependents can use the funds tax-free even if they are not covered on your insurance. Interest on your account grows on a tax-deferred basis and is not considered taxable income as long as it is spent on qualified healthcare expenses.

Healthcare Savings

By using tax-free dollars to pay for eligible IRS-qualified medical, dental, prescription and vision expenses, you’re actually paying less than you would pay out of pocket.

Rollover Benefits

Unlike other accounts, your HSA dollars roll over from year to year. There’s no “use it or lose it” policy—even if you change jobs or healthcare plans.

Income Protection
  • Short-Term Disability (STD) – you pay on an after-tax basis; coverage of $200 to $3,000 per month for up to 90 days.
  • Long-Term Disability (LTD) – you and RSF share the cost; coverage of 60% of your salary, up to $15,000 per month, beginning on the 91st day of disability.
  • Workers’ Compensation – RSF pays for this coverage.
Interest on the account grows tax-free!

Supplemental retirement savings. You can use your HSA as supplemental retirement income once you reach age 65. Withdrawals as retirement income are subject to income taxes. Withdrawals for qualified healthcare expenses continue to be tax-free.

How much should I contribute to my HSA?

You can save for eligible medical expenses by contributing to your Roper St. Francis HSA through pre-tax payroll deductions and claim your contributions on your personal tax return even if you do not itemize. Your maximum contribution (including Roper St. Francis’s contribution) is $3,400 for an individual or $6,850 for a family (plus a $1,000 catch-up for those age 55 and older).

How much will Roper St. Francis contribute to my HSA?

Important. If you are at least 65 and enrolled in Medicare or claimed as a dependent on someone else’s federal tax return, you may still elect the Alliance Save plan; however, you will not be eligible to open an HSA, per IRS regulations. You are also not eligible to receive the RSF-funded HSA contribution. (If your spouse is enrolled in Medicare, you can still open an HSA and receive the RSF-funded HSA contribution.) Domestic partners and their children can be covered under the Alliance Save plan. However, the use of your HSA is regulated by the IRS; therefore, expenses incurred for your domestic partner and/or your domestic partner’s children are not eligible for reimbursement from your HSA unless they are tax-qualified dependents, as defined by the IRS. Your domestic partner is able to open and contribute to his/her own HSA account, and is able to use those contributions to pay for his/her own medical expenses.
