Health Savings Account (HSA)

How to open a self-directed Health Savings Account (HSA)
What is a Health Savings Account (HSA)

A Mountain West IRA self-directed Health Savings Account (HSA) combines high deductible health insurance with a tax-favored savings account. Contributions to the HSA are 100% deductible, just like a traditional IRA. Unlike a traditional IRA, distributions used to pay qualified medical expenses can be taken tax-free at any time. All other assets left in the account remain tax-deferred.

Who can have an HSA?
  • Covered by qualified high deductible health insurance plan (HDHP)
  • Not covered by other health insurance
  • Not enrolled in Medicare
  • Not another person’s dependent
