To be eligible and qualify for a HSA, individuals must be covered by a high deductible health plan (HDHP). Additionally, individuals may not:
- Be enrolled for Medicare benefits.
- Be claimed as a dependent on another person's tax return.
- Have additional health coverage that is not a high deductible health plan (HDHP).
Check with your health insurance provider or tax professional to see if you qualify for a HSA.

HSA funds are for qualified medical expenses incurred by you, your spouse and all dependents you claim on your tax return. Qualified medical expenses include, but are not limited to the following:
- Doctor and dentist visits.
- Hearing aids, eyeglasses and LASIK.
- Health premiums when you are unemployed or over age 65.
- Medical transportation to receive medical care.
