Grand Valley Bank is proud to offer Health Savings Accounts (HSA) to those who have High Deductible Health Plans. This account lets you take advantage of the tax benefits offered by the IRS and it can help you save money to go towards your health care costs at the same time.
With an HSA account, you have control over where your health care dollars are spent. Your deposits can be tax deductible, and the account balance along with interest earned can be tax deferred when used to pay for qualified medical expenses. IRS Publication 502 will give you the most current qualification for those tax deferments. Keep in mind that the funds that are in your HSA account do not expire. Speak with your New Accounts Representative today to see how a Health Savings Account account will benefit you.

- You must already be covered by a qualified High Deductible Health Insurance Plan (HDHP)
