Health savings account

We offer health plans that can be paired with a health savings account (HSA). These plans have higher deductibles. An HSA is simply a bank account for health care expenses. Our HSAs comes with a helpful debit card for easy access to your account. You can use your HSA card to pay for doctor visits, hospital stays, copays, eyeglasses, prescriptions and more.

Some benefits of using an HSA:

  • Contributions are made with pretax money
  • The interest you earn on your money isn't taxed
  • The money rolls over each year
  • The money goes with you, even if you change health plans or retire

Qualified health plans, essential health benefits and plan levels

Plan levels

Health plans are grouped into categories called metal tiers. They're designed to help you compare health plans with similar coverage. HAP offers silver, bronze and catastrophic tiers. Each tier shows how you and your plan share costs, The amount you pay for covered services, medications and medical supplies is called cost sharing. The different metal tiers are based on the percentage of health care costs the plan covers. Bronze usually have the lowest monthly premiums and highest out-of-pocket costs - copays, deductibles and coinsurance. Silver plans usually have higher monthly premiums and lower out-of-pocket costs.

Catastrophic Plans offer coverage for higher-cost services such as hospitalization. This type of plan is available to individuals who are under 30 or who receive a hardship exemption from the government.
