Health Savings Accounts, or HSAs, are savings instruments that you can use in conjunction with high deductible health insurance policies. HSAs are tax advantaged tools that allow you to invest money for the purpose of paying future medical expenses.

HSAs are completely portable and can help you cover high deductibles or expenses that your insurance policy won't cover.
