HSA Plan Options for Your Group

This page covers HSA plan information


Your HSA plan determines the rate of interest you can accrue on your HSA balance and also any monthly participant fees you must pay for your account. Some employers will choose the HSA plan type for their group and will not let employees change to a different plan type. If you are not sure whether you can choose your own plan, check with your employer or benefits administrator.

Choosing a health savings account (HSA) is an important step in managing your employees' current and future health care expenses. This unique, tax-advantaged account gives your employees the flexibility, security and control necessary to meet changing health care needs.

Choosing Further as your HSA administrator is equally important because with Further you get the benefit of our innovative account options, online management tools and industry expertise — topped off with no hidden fees.

Which will you choose?

Further Premium HSA
Highest interest rate available with an investment option.

Further Value HSA

Account Credit Rates

As you compare HSA programs, be sure to ask how interest is calculated. Further keeps it simple so your employees earn the stated rate on the entire account balance. Some banks pay interest based on the balance and rate in each balance tier.
