Health Savings Account
Employees may contribute and receive employer contributions to their tax-free savings account for medical, dental, and vision expenses to use now and into the future. Annually, an employee may contribute up to $3,500 for self-only or $7,000 for family (2019 limits). Those age 55 or older may contribute an additional $1,000. The HSA is available to those who choose the high deductible health plan.

Both general purpose (medical/dental/vision) and dependent care accounts may be set up offering tax-free savings opportunities each year. For a general purpose account, $2,700 may be contributed annually (2019 limits). For a dependent care account, up to $5,000 may be contributed annually (2019 limits).
