Health Savings Account (HSA)

Choose LMCU for your Health Savings Account!

If you’re enrolled in a high deductible health insurance plan a Health Savings Account (HSAs) will allow you to save toward future medical expenses tax-free. Expenses include:

  • Doctor’s office visits
  • Prescriptions
  • Vision expenses
  • Dental expenses
  • Long-term care insurance

Unlike Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), the money in your HSA is yours forever. No “spend it or lose it” requirements. LMCU’s HSA’s include a free, dedicated debit card, unlimited check writing, and easy 24/7/365 access to your account through LMCU’s Online Banking portal, or our mobile banking app.

Can I use my HSA funds for non-medical expenses?

Yes, but the funds will be subject to income tax and a 20% IRS penalty (Penalty does not apply after age 65).
