Health Savings Account – TIAA Health Equity

We are pleased to announce that West Virginia public higher education employees will have a new health savings account (HSA) plan option to consider for their benefit needs in 2022.

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax-free account that can be used to pay health care expenses. Only West Virginia public employees who have enrolled as the primary policyholder in PEIA Plan C (high-deductible plan) are eligible to enroll in a HSA.  Advantages of a HSA include:

  • A HSA is is owned by the employee. If you leave employment, you can take the account with you.
  • Unlike a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), the funds do not have to be spent in the plan year they are deposited.
  • Employees may make pre-tax contributions to their HSA account.

West Virginia public higher education employees have the option of selecting one of two Health Savings Account vendors:

Option 1: TIAA Health Equity – NEW FOR 2022

Option 2: Mountaineer Flexible Benefits (FBMC) in partnership with PayFlex.
