Let the leader work for you!
Assurant Health was the first to introduce the Health Savings Account (HSA), a tax-advantaged savings account. It's the most innovative approach to health care financing in years. You won't pay tax on the funds you deposit or the interest you make. And you can use the funds to pay for your qualified medical expenses, or start a nest egg for retirement.
When you look at the money you can save with a Health Savings Account (HSA), it's easy to see why it's the smartest way to pay for your health care expenses. Take a look:
| ||Typical Family Plan|
Three times single deductible: $1,000
Common Family deductible: $5,200
(doctor office copay)
|Premium Paid ||$6,720||$3,016|
|Your share of medical care expenses ($1,500 claim) |
$1,000 for deductibles, $100 for coinsurance, $550 for other non-covered medical expenses + $1,650
|$1,500 for medical expenses and $550 for dental/eyewear expenses + $2,050 |
|Expenses subtotal||= $8,370 ||= $5,066 |
|Tax savings on HSA deposits (Assumes a 28% tax bracket on deposit of $5,200, the maximum contribution allowed with a $5,200 deductible) ||$0 ||$1,456|
(out-of-pocket minus savings)
|Total net savings with HSA Plan || ||= $4,760 |
|Note: If you are self-employed, you can deduct your premium. || || |
|This example is based on the national average health insurance premium of an individual with a family of four living in a metropolitan area, covered medical expenses totaling $1,500, and $550 in expenses for dental care, contacts and eyeglasses. Health insurance premiums vary substantially based on age, geographic location and other variables. Federal tax savings calculations assume that contributions are deducted from federal taxes. Withdrawals for non-qualified expenses prior to the age of Medicare eligibility are subject to a 10% penalty by the IRS. |
