28 Who is eligible for HSA? To own an HSA you need to: Be covered ONLY by an HSA-qualified health plan Other health coverage may disqualify you, including Health FSA, Medicare or traditional health plan Health FSA must have a $0 balance on Dec. 31, 2013 (complete any claims reimbursement by Dec. 31, 2013) Not be claimed as a dependent on someone else s tax return

29 How does HSA work? UC makes annual contribution for plans that start on January 1. You may contribute through payroll deduction or make post-tax contributions to HealthEquity Use a HSA debit card to pay for health expenses Use HealthEquity website to pay medical and other health claims Invest HSA dollars when account balance reaches $2000 no fees to invest
