Business Health Savings Account Options

Horizon Bank Business Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) have the potential to enhance your employees’ benefits packages in significant ways. If your business provides a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) for employees, your company is eligible for Horizon Bank HSAs. An HSA, in conjunction with an HDHP, allows your business to share the cost of healthcare benefits with your employees by contributing funds directly to their HSAs. Whether your company is considering an HSA for the first time, or is looking at switching from an existing program, Horizon Bank can help you find the HSA program that fits the needs of your business and satisfies your employees.

  • Contribute Funds in a Lump Sum or on an On-Going Bi-Weekly or Monthly with no minimum balance requirements
  • Significantly Reduce Healthcare Benefits Costs

Note: Beyond the standard contribution limit above, if you are of age 55 before the close of a taxable year, you can also make an additional contribution.
