Look forward, not back, with an HSA from Financial Center

If you're looking for a supplement to your current health care plan, then you may want to consider a Health Savings Account.  With the massive reform on our health care system that took place on Sunday, everyone (eligible) will have to have health care.  Many are saying this means looking forward to lots of new plans with low premiums and high deductible rates, which means a huge shift towards HSAs are likely.  

Now could not be a better time to look into a HSA (FCFCU HSA), not only for individuals, but also for businesses.  Even before the latest bill, HSA assets have been increasing in the past few years due to the tax breaks and cost-cutting by employers.  HSAs have attracted $8.6 billion in assets since they were signed into law in 2003. By contrast, retirement accounts like 401(k)s held $2.4 trillion at the end of 2008 and drive the $10 trillion mutual fund industry.  But some industry experts forecast HSA assets rising to $50 billion to $100 billion in coming years. For one thing, money in the accounts can be carried over from year to year, unlike so-called flexible spending accounts that require workers to use their annual contributions by year-end or lose them.

Many are seeing HSA benefits as a better solution than ramping up another expensive plan.  If you're in Indianapolis, you'll want to look into HSA accounts with Financial Center (FCFCU).
