We’re pleased to announce that you have a choice of <INSERT NUMBER> health plans from LifeWise Health Plan of Oregon during open enrollment this year, including an innovative new “HSA” plan that works in combination with a tax-advantaged Health Savings Account. People across the nation are embracing HSA plans, and for a very good reason. When used in conjunction with a Health Savings Account, a HSA plan offers more individual control in how health-care dollars are spent. The combination is designed to empower and promote changes that can result in healthier lifestyles, and a more productive work and family life—which is good for all of us and for our company as a whole. With the HSA plan and a Health Savings Account, you are a stakeholder in how your health-care dollars are spent. You also realize a triple tax advantage: Contributions are made on a tax-advantaged basis. The account grows tax-deferred. When the accumulated funds are withdrawn for qualifying health-care expenses, such as deductible and coinsurance, they’re tax free.
