Many business owners offer high deductible insurance plans to their employees. The employees then have the option of opening a Health Savings Account to help save for future medical expenses.
A Health Savings Account is an account designed specifically to help save for medical expenses. Contributions to this account can be made by the employee, the employer or both. The total contributions you make are limited annually. If you make a contribution, you may deduct the contributions (even if you do not itemize deductions) when completing your federal income tax return.*
