Health care coverage tailored to you

With a Health Spending Account (HSA), you have the flexibility to direct your health care dollars where you need them most. Health care is clearly not a one-size-fits-all situation, and every situation is unique. You, as the Employer, determine the health benefit you want to offer your employees. Out-of-pocket expenses for you, your spouse, your children, and other dependents can quickly escalate, and potentially create financial hardship. A Link HSA is a very useful tool to help you manage these costs.
