Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) December 12, 2007 - HSA for America, the leading source for individual and family HSA-
qualified health insurance plans, announced today a series of free teleseminars to help individuals and families who purchase their own health insurance. The first, to be held this Thursday December 13th, will be on the topic of Health Savings Accounts, or HSAs.
HSAs are special tax-deferred accounts where someone can put aside tax-deductible money, which can then be used to pay for future medical expenses, tax-free. If the money is not used, it simply grows tax-deferred, like an IRA. Available since January 2004, HSAs have become the most popular type of health insurance coverage purchased by individuals.
"Our typical customer is saving $1,000 or more in taxes, and cutting their health insurance premium by 40%," says Wiley Long, president of HSA for America. "Yet many people are still confused about how HSA plans work, because they are very different than typical health insurance plans that offer copays for doctor visits and prescriptions."
The teleseminar will cover how HSAs work, how they can be used to build a medical retirement account, and why HSAs are so popular with people who use alternative medical treatments like homeopathy and acupuncture. The phone lines will also be open to allow callers to get any questions they have about HSAs answered.

A family who has their HSA-qualified health insurance approved before January 1st can contribute up to $5,650 into their health savings account. "We expect to have a lot of people at these teleseminars, because most people have put this off until the very last minute", added Long.
