Health Savings Account (HSA)

Health Savings Account (HSA)

If you enroll in the Aetna Healthfund Choice plan, you may be eligible to open a Health Savings Account (HSA), through HealthEquity, to help pay for eligible expenses not covered under your medical, dental, or vision plan. This includes things like orthodontics, glasses and contact lenses, and prescription medications. An HSA makes it easy to pay for current health care costs and save for future health care needs, even into retirement.

What’s in It for Me?

  • Cradlepoint contributes $ to your HSA! It’s FREE money! See the chart for contributions.
  • You can set aside pre-tax money from your paycheck to help pay for additional out-of-pocket health care expenses. HSAs give you triple tax advantages:
    1. Your contributions to the HSA are not taxed.*
    2. Payment of qualified expenses is tax-free.
    3. Earnings are tax-free.*
  • The HSA is an individual account you own! The entire balance is yours to keep. If you leave the company, the account goes with you.
  • You can make changes to your HSA contributions at any time. Unused funds always roll over to the next plan year.
  • Your HSA gives you the freedom to control and manage your healthcare spending and savings to grow your balance for future qualified medical expenses, such as those in retirement.

How Much Can I Contribute?

You can contribute pre-tax dollars from your paycheck up to the annual IRS maximums to pay for eligible health care expenses. Cradlepoint contributes FREE money to your HSA. See the breakdown of employee and employer contributions shown in the charts below. 

Note: If you make changes to your plans mid-year due to a family status change, do not forgot to adjust your HSA contributions accordingly so you do not exceed the annual IRS maximums. 

HSA contributions cannot exceed the annual IRS maximums shown here:
