Health Savings Account (HSA)

When HDHP is selected for the first time during employment (either during new hire, or switching at open enrollment) SUU will contribute $500, one time, to the employee's HSA.

The HSA has a $3,500/$7,000 annual contribution limit (EE + ER) for 2019 calendar year.

Funds in the HSA roll over each year if unused and are portable, all funds deposited into the HSA go with the employee if they leave SUU employment.

Health Reimbursement Account (HRA)

Special enrollment for employees with HDHP and are not eligible for HSA. Employer contribution only.
