How the Medical Plan and HSA Work
- Elect the Health Savings Account (HSA) during the medical enrollment process.
- You can contribute pre-tax dollars to a Health Savings Account (HSA).
- In order to receive the Company's HSA contribution, you must contribute to your account, up to the current 2022 federal limit (See “HSA Contributions” section below).
- It’s your choice how and when to use the money – use it to pay for your qualified medical, dental, or vision expenses, or save it for future needs.
- The HSA dollars you use go toward paying your annual deductible.
- Whatever you don’t use in 2022 earns interest and rolls over to 2023.
- With the plan, you’ll pay an annual deductible before your health plan begins to pay for eligible expenses. A deductible is the amount of money that you’ll be required to pay before your plan starts paying benefits.
- You can meet your deductible by using your HSA dollars, your own money or both.
- Only services covered by your health plan count toward your deductible. (See Summary of Benefits below for more details.)
- Once you meet your deductible, you pay co-insurance, which is a percentage of your medical cost. The plan pays for the rest.
- Your deductible counts toward your out-of-pocket maximum (the most you’ll pay in a given year for all covered expenses). Once you meet your out-of-pocket maximum (which includes your deductible), your plan pays covered expenses at 100%.
Health Savings Account (HSA)
Company contributions* to employee Health Savings Accounts in 2022:
$500 (if you contribute $250 or more) - Employee only
$800 (if you contribute $400 or more) - Employee + Spouse
$800 (if you contribute $400 or more) - Employee + Child(ren)
$1,000 (if you contribute $500 or more) - Employee + Family
- You receive 50% of the Company funding in January. If you contribute equal to or greater than the 50% during 2022, the Company will match the additional 50%.
- The federal contribution limit (including employer contribution) is Single: $3,650; Family: $7,300. If you are age 55+, you may contribute an additional annual catch-up contribution of $1,000.
*New Hires, New HSA participants and Qualifying life event participants, please see section below regarding HSA Company contributions.
New hires may contribute to their HSA once they become benefit eligible. However, the employee will not receive any Company money during the first calendar year of participation. In 2023, the employee will then be eligible to receive the initial 2023 Company money and the 2023 employer match (as long as the employee is contributing at the appropriate level to the 2023 HSA plan).
- New Hire Example: John Doe is hired Jan. 28, 2022. He may start contributing to the HSA plan once he is benefit eligible; however, during the 2022 calendar year he will not receive any company seed or match. Starting with his first paycheck in 2023, he will receive the 2023 company seed. As long as the employee is contributing to HSA plan, he will receive a match per the terms of the 2023 HSA plan.
New HSA Participants and Qualifying Life Event Participants
New participants to the HSA in 2022 may contribute to their HSA. However, the employee will not receive any Company money during the first calendar year of participation. In 2023, the employee will then be eligible to receive the initial 2023 Company money and the 2023 employer match (as long as the employee is contributing at the appropriate level to the 2023 HSA plan).
Qualifying Life Events During the Year
If an HSA participant has a qualifying life event during the year and changes their HSA coverage (for example changes their HSA plan contribution from Employee Only to Employee + Spouse), they may continue to contribute and receive appropriate company match, however their initial employer seed money provided in January 2022 will not be modified.

- The Company pays for the basic banking fees, and the employee is responsible for any additional fees. Please see attached fee schedule for details.
