Employer Contribution Options

It's easy to contribute to your employees' Health Savings Accounts (HSA). We provide several options to meet your specific needs. Be sure that you are signed up as a business partner with HSA Bank prior to selecting a contribution option.

Note: Each year the IRS sets annual HSA contribution limits. Let your employees know the limits so that their contribution does not exceed the amount.

Detailed information, including step-by-step instructions regarding each of our contribution methods, can be found in the HSA Bank Employer Manual.
