Overview

If you enroll in the $2,850 PPO HDHP with HSA or the $2,850 HMO HDHP with HSA, you are eligible to enroll in and contribute to a Health Savings Account (HSA). An HSA is a tax-advantaged savings account that you can use to pay for current or future qualified health care expenses.

WinnCompanies will contribute $500 for team member-only coverage and $1,000 for employee +1 and Family coverage. You can also contribute to your HSA on a pre-tax basis, which saves you money by lowering the amount you pay in income taxes. You must open your HSA on MM365+ to receive WinnCompanies’ contribution and the contributions you elected.

  • All the money in your HSA is yours to keep, year after year.
  • You can build up savings to pay for future health care expenses. You can even invest your money once it reaches a minimum balance, which gives you the potential for tax-free earnings growth and a way to plan ahead for your medical costs in retirement.

  • Up to $3,550 for team member-only coverage
  • Up to $7,100 for family coverage

*Money in an HSA can be withdrawn tax-free as long as it is used to pay for qualified health-related expenses. If money is used for ineligible expenses, you will pay ordinary income tax on the amount withdrawn, plus a 20% penalty tax if you withdraw the money before age 65.
