A Optum (formerly Wells Fargo) HSA is like an IRA for your healthcare that empowers you to prepare for and manage healthcare costs. HSAs offer triple tax benefits, including tax-free1 saving, growth, and spending on qualified medical expenses anytime, from today throughout your retirement — something you can’t get from other retirement accounts. HSAs complement your retirement plan, helping you prepare for the $250,000 or more that you will need for retirement medical expenses. HSAs can also be used to save and pay tax-free today for your healthcare expenses — from doctor’s visits to prescriptions, as well as dental and vision expenses.
