Health Savings Account (HSA)
Prepare for the unexpected. Health Savings Accounts offer tax-deductible contributions, tax-free earnings, and tax-free withdrawals for qualified medical expenses. To get the benefits of an HSA, the law requires that the savings account be combined with high-deductible health insurance.
To open your account, contact a State Farm® agent or call State Farm Bank at 877-SF4-BANK (877-734-2265). Callers who are hearing or speech impaired should dial 711 or use a preferred Telecommunications Relay Service.

This flexible account, combined with a high-deductible health plan (HDHP), is a great way to save and pay for medical expenses.

2Deposits to Health Savings Accounts made at an ATM will count only as current year contributions. With the Health Savings Visa® CheckCard, it is your responsibility to confirm that your withdrawals are for expenses that are qualified medical expenses and qualify for tax excludability. It is imperative to maintain sufficient medical expense records. The records identify that the distributions have been made exclusively for qualified medical expenses and such distributions are, therefore, excludable, from gross income.
An HSA is a tax-exempt trust or a custodial account in which you can save money to pay for future qualified medical expenses. Expenses incurred before your HSA is established aren't considered qualified medical expenses. Qualified medical expenses are explained in IRS Publication 969 and IRS Publication 502. An HSA must be used in conjunction with a high-deductible health plan (HDHP), and any growth in the HSA is tax-free.
If you have plans to make a contribution to an HSA and currently have a hospital indemnity policy or plans to purchase one in the future, then you should consult with your tax advisor about the features offered in the hospital indemnity policy and the possible implications of combining such a policy with a HSA.
For additional details, consult your financial and/or tax advisor to discuss your specific situation.
