Handling Your Healthcare Expenses
A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax-exempt account with a financial institution in which funds accumulate to pay for medical expenses. They were created in response to the rising cost of healthcare and with the intent to give the consumer back the control of their healthcare costs.
Community State Bank offers many value-added services at an affordable rate, which makes our HSA product the most complete product in the marketplace. We provide our accountholders multiple distribution methods, including debit cards, checks and withdrawal forms.

Open an HSA
Before a health savings account can be opened, a qualified High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) must be in place to cover the individual or family. An HDHP provides health coverage for an individual or family with an affordable premium. The guidelines for an HDHP are determined by the Internal Revenue Service each year. To determine if your plan qualifies, please contact your health plan representative.
