Focus on getting better without worrying about the bills
Major illnesses, severe injuries and chronic conditions can cause considerable stress in your family. So can the big medical bills that follow.

Purdue Federal Credit Union serves members worldwide and operates branches throughout Greater Lafayette, Crown Point and La Porte, Indiana.
In order to open an HSA, you must be covered by a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) — high deductible considered to be at least $1,500 annually for an individual and $3,000 or more annually for a family. You cannot be claimed as a dependant on anyone's tax return and cannot be entitled to benefits under Medicare.
Once you open an HSA, you may contribute up to $3,850 per individual and $7,750 per family per year. "Catch-up" contributions are available for account holders age 55 or older. See Rate sheet for details.
