Benefits Education - Health Savings Account (HSA)

Did you know that if you are enrolled in the BlueEdge HDHP you can set aside pre-tax contributions from your paycheck into a Health Savings Account (HSA) administered by BenefitWallet?  Not only can an HSA be utilized for your eligible out of pocket medical, vision and dental expenses, but it has a lot of other great features such as: 
  • Higher contribution limits that roll over year to year:
    • $3,350/year with employee-only coverage
    • $6,750/year with dependent coverage
    • +$1,000/year “catch-up” if over age 55 or older

*OSU contributes $83.34 per month into your HSA for those enrolled in BlueEdge employee-only and $125 per month with dependent coverage

**Contribution elections can be made throughout the year without a qualifying event

  • Investment options: upon reaching $1000 in your account, you can set up an HSA Investment Account to diversity and grow your savings tax free.
  • Account ownership: you own your account, and it goes with you if you leave the University.  Upon leaving, the funds can be utilized to pay for your COBRA or Medicare Insurance.
