    Dr. D - Coastal Federal Credit Union does HSA. DH has his with them. I think anyone can join CFCU.

    Thanks DIANELUCASRAT. Yes, we do have a health insurance plan with a high deductible and also have HSAs through employer. Our young adult DD is still on our health insurance because her employer does not provide benefits, but we're not allowed to use our HSA funds for her medical expenses not covered by insurance because she is no longer our dependent for tax purposes. So we're trying to figure out where/how to open an HSA for her. We're not state employees and don't have SECU accounts, but it's good to know that they offer HSAs; hopefully that info will help other folks. :-)

    I have an HSA acct for years. You have to have an insurance plan with high deductible to get an HSA acct. My acct through SECU.

    Question: Anyone know how/where to open a Health Savings Account other than through an employer? I've read online "at a bank" but haven't found one nearby that offers this yet. If possible, I'd prefer the organization have a local branch. Thanks in advance!

    remer54 - thanks! At 3, we'll be able to see all the unadvertised and continuing sales so I am waiting (not so patiently - lol) until then. Have a good shop. If by chance they are out of stock when you get there today, rainchecks would make for incredible deals during SD with the coupons!
