SSM Health Plan Well HSA

You can pay and save for your current and future medical expenses with a tax-advantaged individually owned HSA from WellFirst Health.

If you have a qualifying high-deductible health plan (HDHP) and meet other IRS requirements, you can set up a health savings account (HSA) through WellFirst Health to save pre-tax dollars for your—or your family’s—medical expenses.

How does it work?

Money deposited into Plan Well HSA belongs to you--the account holder, no matter who deposited it.

And there's no “use it or lose it” rule either, so don't worry. Rest assured the money can sit, stay and rollover until it is spent.
