Health Savings Account

Health Savings Account - Pay & Benefits, Benefits, Flexible Spending, UW Hospitals and Clinics, Flexible Spending Accounts and Health Savings Accounts (UWHC)


Benefit Summary

A Health Savings Account (HSA) lets you save money tax-free to pay for health care expenses not covered by insurance. If you do not use all your HSA funds, they carry over year-to-year without forfeiture. The money is yours, even if you leave the High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) or employment.

UWHC will contribute to an employee's HSA. These contributions are considered part of the annual contribution maximum. You will want to take these amounts into consideration when determining the amount you would like to have deducted from your pay.

HSA Contributions Single Family
UWHC Contributions $750 $1500
Maximum IRS HSA Contributions $3450 $6900

Benefit Eligibility

All full-time and part-time employees of UWHC who are enrolled in a High Deductible Health Plan are eligible to enroll in an HSA. Employees-in-training and graduate assistants are not eligible to enroll in a Health Savings Account.

Health Savings Accounts


Premiums are based on your contribution election. Typically the annual contribution is divided between all remaining payrolls in the calendar year. This can be adjusted upon request.
