The Health Savings Account program was signed into law in 2004 to help relieve the financial burden caused by high deductible health insurance plans. As premiums skyrocketed back in the early 2000’s, the “semi” cost-effective way of dealing with higher out-of-pocket expenses was to open a tax-deductible account earning tax-free interest when used for a qualified medical expense.
