Investing

Just like a traditional savings account, your HSA earns interest which is not taxed. Your monthly statement displays the current interest rate paid on your account, and rates are also available when selecting ‘Interest Rates’ from the HSA menu under the ‘My Account’ tab. Once your account meets a certain cash balance threshold, you can invest in mutual funds to further maximize your HSA tax-free earning potential and pay for qualified healthcare costs now and in the future.

How to invest

  1. Log into the member portal
  2. Select ‘Investments’ from the ‘My Account’ tab
  3. Indicate whether you would like to receive investment advice (Advisor™) or you would like to manage your own investments without advice (Self-Driven)

Advisor™ provides web-based professional investment guidance and access to powerful online tools to maximize your tax-free HSA earning potential. Our flexible options allow you to manage your funds or have us do all of the work for you.

Investing FAQs

  • What happens if my balance falls below the investment threshold?

    You will not be allowed to invest any more funds until your balance exceeds the investment threshold. Investment and HSA cash balances are treated as separate accounts, and there is no consequence to your investments if your available balance falls below the investment threshold. You do not have to sell you investments and you do not lose them.

  • Are my eligible medical claims paid for or reimbursed from my investment account?

    No. Investment account balances are separate from your cash balance. To use investment funds to pay for claims you must sell shares. The proceeds from the sale are automatically moved to your HSA cash balance within three to five business days.

  • How do I know my HSA cash balance vs. how much is invested?

    Log in to your member portal. Your HSA cash balance and investment balances will display in the ‘Account Balances’ section. You can also select ‘Account Summary’ from the ‘My Account’ tab.

  • Do I have to pay taxes on interest earned from my investments?

    No. All interest earned on your HSA and investment account within your HSA is tax-free, provided it is used for qualified medical expenses. Any balances from investments sold are automatically moved into your HSA cash balance.
