Health Savings Account

A smart way to save for healthcare expenses. 


Manage your healthcare expenses and savings quickly, easily.

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a medical savings account that offers tax advantages4 and is available to U.S. taxpayers who are enrolled in a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). Funds deposited to an HSA are made as pre-tax contributions. An HSA is different from a Flexible Spending Account because the funds roll over and accumulate year-after-year and are available for future medical expenses.

Convenience

At Macatawa Bank, we offer convenient ways of paying for your qualified medical expenses: HSA MasterCard® Debit Card, checks or within Online Banking. Plus, account holders pay no monthly fees and have no minimum balance requirements.

Premium Interest Rates

We offer competitive tiered interest rates on our HSAs, allowing you to earn more as you save more.

Long-Term Management of your HSA Account

As your account grows in value, Macatawa Bank offers an optional HSA Investment Sweep3 dedicated to maximize the performance of your account.

Health Savings FAQs

What is a Health Savings Account (HSA)?

HSAs are the latest news in affordable healthcare for small businesses and self-employed individuals. They provide a way to put money in a special account owned by an individual to pay for current and future medical expenses. HSAs must be used in conjunction with a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP).

What is a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)?

A HDHP is a health insurance plan with lower premiums and higher deductibles than a traditional plan.  You need to verify with your insurance provider and/or with your employer as to whether or not your insurance plan qualifies you to contribute to an HSA. Plans with co-pays are not usually eligible.

How do HSAs Provide Such Affordable Healthcare?

Annual contributions reduce taxable income, allowing qualified medical expenses to be tax-free*. Money saved in an HSA grows tax-deferred until age 65. After age 65, the funds can continue to be withdrawn tax-free* for medical care expenses. Non-medical withdrawals are permitted at this point as well; however, your current tax rate applies to funds used for non-medical purposes at the time you withdraw the money.
