HealthEquity, Inc. announced today that it is partnering with First HSA, LLC of Reading, PA to become the custodian and payment transaction processor for First HSA’s 43,000 health savings account (HSA) holders.

In exchange, HealthEquity will extend its presence in the Northeast by providing custodial services to First HSA’s employer and health plan partners.

“The advantages of this partnership will be felt by our members almost immediately,” said Dr. William West, co-founder of First HSA. “They will get the same high level of customer service and support they have always experienced, while getting a better, more streamlined technology product with enhanced functionality that will improve their overall HSA experience.”
