To be clear, I don’t have a Health Savings Account. But I want one. Really freaking bad. The key is finding a job that offers me this option.
The main reason I want one is because I am a low-use user, which is whom HSA ‘s are good for, and if I don’t use up all the money in any given year, it just rolls over to the next year, thus allowing me to save up in case some huge unexpected medical expense ever comes up. Awesome right?
