HDHP & HSA Cliff Notes

February 8th, 2008 at 01:39 pm

In response to a question I received, this is a condensation of information I have posted elsewhere. Hope this little cheat sheet helps anyone shopping for a HDHP & HSA (or just wanting to learn more about them)!

HDHP (High Deductible Health Plan): I chose United Health Care. Blue Cross / Blue Shield also seemed like an excellent choice. I'm sure there are other good ones too.

HSA (Health Savings Account): Exante and HSA Bank seem to be the "big 2," but I chose HSA Resources Bank due to wonderful experiences with their parent company (Stearns Bank).

If you are thinking about getting a HDHP and HSA and want to learn more, I recommend the following sites.

For General Info on HSAs:
