How to Set Up an HSA


Setting up a Health Savings Account

You can open a health savings account at any bank or credit union. Most insurance companies offer HSAs through a specific bank they have partnered with, but these banks often charge high service fees.

We recommend using Lively because they:

  • Offer free HSA Accounts for Individuals 
  • Provide a free debit card
  • 100% online and paperless and only take 5 min to sign up

After HSA Enrollment

After you enroll in a Health Savings Account, your bank or administrator will send you the same materials you would receive after opening up a checking or savings account. This normally includes:

  • An HSA welcome kit that contains all the information about the account and the associated fees
  • A debit card, unless requested otherwise on the application
  • A sweet online account to manage your HSA account
