Health Savings Account
If you enroll in CDHP 20 or CDHP 30, you’ll have access to a Health Savings Account (HSA) from Fidelity. An HSA allows you to set aside money from your pay on a pre-tax basis to help you save and pay for eligible medical, prescription drug, dental, and vision care expenses.
Your HSA dollars are always yours — even if you change medical plans, leave the company or retire.
In 2019, you can contribute $3,500 with individual coverage or $7,000 with family coverage.
If you are age 55 or older, you may contribute an additional $1,000.
Your HSA funds are available only as they are deposited in your account.
If the funds in your account reach $1,000, you can invest that money through Fidelity, our account administrator.
The HSA comes with a Visa debit card that you can use to pay for care, if you have the funds in your account to cover the expense.
- You pay nothing at the time of service (except for pharmacy).
- Your provider submits a claim for the services you received to Cigna.
- Cigna sends you an explanation of benefits showing what discounts were applied, what Equifax paid and what you owe.
- You pay the bill to the provider by using your Visa debit card or personal funds.

If you’re enrolling in an HSA for the first time, you’ll need to activate your HSA with Fidelity after you’ve enrolled in the HSA in Workday. You will not receive a debit card until you have fully activated you account.
