You don't lose funds if you change jobs and money rolls over year to year. You must have a high deductible qualifying health insurance policy to open Health Savings accounts.
*Direct deposit from your paycheck will reduce your taxable earnings. Yearly contributions (deposits) are limited. Consult a tax advisor. If contributions are made after income was taxed, the amount deposited is tax deductible. Consult a tax advisor.
