Health Savings Accounts for Individuals

American 1 offers Health Savings Accounts (HSA) for our members. HSAs are a tax-exempt savings arrangement for people who are covered by high-deductible health insurance plans (HDHP). The money you save can be applied to medical expenses and co-payments, and the balance of your HSA can roll over from year to year.

Paying your medical bills and co-payments is easy: we provide a debit card and a box of checks to pay your bills, and provide unlimited transactions from the account. Your HSA earns dividends, requires no minimum balance, and can be managed just like any other American 1 account with Online Banking.

  • Unlimited transactions
  • Free debit card
  • Free first box of checks
  • No monthly service fee
  • No setup fee
  • No minimum balance
  • No closing fee
  • Free Online Banking

Health Savings Accounts for Businesses and Organizations

American 1 is proud to offer HSAs to businesses, non-profits, and organizations as a benefit option for your employees - and we're one of the few financial institutions in the area to offer these accounts.

Our HSA features no setup fee, no monthly maintenance fee, and we'll provide on-site sign-ups and Q&A sessions. Call us for more information today.

Debit Card for Savings Account

American 1 offers a debit card that can be tied to a savings account if you do not have a checking account at the credit union. The American 1 Debit card can still be used at ATMs but please note that you will want to click on "CHECKING" to do your transaction. The American 1 debit card can also be used anywhere that MasterCard is accepted.
