HSA

Health Savings Accounts allow employees to set aside a portion of their paychecks (before taxes) into an "IRA-like" custodial account to pay expenses not covered by another health plan. To contribute to an HSA, the employee must also be covered by an IRS qualified high deductible health plan. Employers may contribute to employees' HSAs. Unlike FSAs, unused funds can be carried forward to the future. HSAs are also portable and can be taken to a new employer or used at retirement.
