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.

You will receive half of your contribution in January 2021, and the second half in July 2021. You must be employed at time of distribution in order to receive HSA contributions from WinnCompanies.

  • 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.

In 2021, the limits on total contributions to your account (from you and WinnCompanies combined) are:

  • Up to $3,600 for team member-only coverage
  • Up to $7,200 for family coverage

WinnCompanies will contribute $500 for individual coverage and $1,000 for employee +1 and Family coverage.

Add $1,000 to these limits if you’re age 55 or older.

Reminder: Keep documentation to support your use of the money in these accounts for tax purposes.

*Money in an HSA can be withdrawn tax-free as long as it is used to pay for qualified health-related expenses. If money is used for ineligible expenses, you will pay ordinary income tax on the amount withdrawn, plus a 20% penalty tax if you withdraw the money before age 65.

**NOTE: You’ll receive only one debit card to use for all of your Mercer Marketplace 365+ supported accounts.
