CBIA's Health Savings Account (HSA) Progam

If you are covered by one of our HSA compatible health plans, then a tax-advantaged Health Savings Account may be for you. Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) help pay for your medical care and allow you to build up savings to pay for future medical expenses.

CBIA HSAs are comprised of two parts, your choice of HSA compatible health plans and the tax advantaged Health Savings Account vehicle. To determine if these plans are right for you and your employees, check out our Employer Calculator and Employee Calculator.
