Have a high-deductible health plan? A Dupaco Health Savings Account (HSA) is a smart way to set money aside for current and future medical expenses. It’s like a personal savings account, but with extra benefits!
How It Works
An HSA is basically a savings account with investment earnings and tax advantages. It gives you the flexibility to pay current medical expenses or save for future medical expenses
- Your contributions to the account are tax-deductible
- Your balance earns tax-deferred dividends
- Distributions are tax-free when the account is used properly
If you don’t use all the funds in your health savings account, don’t worry — your balance carries over from year to year, and it remains with you regardless of changes in coverage or employment.
To be eligible to for a Dupaco HSA, you must meet the following IRS-defined requirements:
- You must be covered under a high-deductible health plan (HDHP)
- You aren’t covered by another health plan (with limited exceptions)
- You aren’t enrolled in Medicare
- You can’t be claimed as a dependent on another person’s tax return
Other restrictions and exceptions may also apply. We recommend consulting a tax, legal or financial advisor to discuss your personal needs and eligibility.

Tax-free withdrawals for qualified expenses
Easy Access to Your Funds
Your Dupaco HSA makes it simple to access and track your qualified medical spending. Easily track your account using free online and mobile banking, electronic statements and notifications, check images, and many other convenient online tools. You’ll also enjoy:
- No limits on check writing and no per-check charges
- Free MoneyCard* for use at medical service providers and merchants

*To help you keep your funds separate, your Dupaco HSA MoneyCard (debit MasterCard) will access only your HSA checking package. It will not access your share savings account or provide overdraft protection.
The money you set aside for medical expenses can earn dividends while it’s waiting to be used. Daily dividends are paid monthly back to dollar one, and you earn higher rates for higher balances.
