Guidelines and Changes from 2009 to 2010
Type of Coverage
A Health Savings Account (HSA) is an affordable alternative to traditional health insurance that offers Ohio residents an alternative method to pay for their health care. HSAs enable you to pay for current health expenses and save for future qualified medical expenses on a tax-free basis. Most major Ohio health insurance companies offer them. The most competitive rates are offered by Anthem Blue Cross, Medical Mutual, Aetna, UnitedHealthOne and Humana.
You must be covered under a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) to qualify to make a contribution. An HDHP is an inexpensive health insurance policy that costs substantially less than a traditional Ohio health insurance plan, and offers you the opportunity to deposit the money you save into the HSA.
As Ohio’s premier trusted resource for affordable coverage, we research all of the major health insurance companies. Only the highest-quality plans are considered with most offering preventive coverage that is not subject to a deductible. The quoted rates are the lowest allowable by the state, since premiums are mandated. That ultimately protects the consumer.
