Health Savings Account (HSA)
Keep high medical costs from obliterating your personal savings account. An interest-bearing health savings account (HSA) lets you save for medical expenses if you are covered under a high deductible health plan (HDHP).
Best of all, your money will stay with you throughout the years — even if you change careers. Make your health a priority and start saving today! Lee Bank has several conveniently located branches throughout the Berkshires.
