It Won't Hurt A Bit
A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a way to pay for medical expenses. It’s a tax-deductible savings account that helps pay for costs associated with your high deductible health plan (HDHP).

The amount you pay into an HSA comes out of your paycheck before taxes. You can change this amount at any time. Employees, employers, spouses, parents, children and friends can contribute to an HSA.
