What is an FSA or HSA?
FSA (flexible spending account) and HSA (health savings account) are both health spending accounts which allow you to contribute a specific percentage of your salary/wages to cover medical expenses. The specific percentage is deposited into the account which is typically attached to a debit card for you to use.
