Decide if an HSA is right for you

With an HSA, you decide how much to contribute and how to use the funds. If you're a U.S. citizen with an HSA-qualified high deductible health plan (HDHP), it's time to open a Health Savings Account with Thrivent Federal Credit Union. With an HSA, you can plan and budget for medical expenses, pay current medical bills or deductibles or save the money for future use. You own the money, not your employer.
