Covering the Medicare gap

Medicare will not cover all medical expenses after retirement. An HSA, when managed properly, is a great option to cover the expenses that Medicare will not. Additionally, an HSA can be used to pay for dental, vision and hearing expenses, which may not be covered by Medicare.

  1. Contributions are tax-free
  2. Earnings are not taxed
  3. When used for qualified medical expenses, distributions are not taxed
