Drugs included in our formulary are carefully selected by physicians and pharmacists for their efficacy, and the formulary is reviewed and updated regularly.

    You can use your HSA to pay deductible expenses, as well as copays and some other health care expenses that are determined by the individual HSA. In addition, premiums can vary by many hundreds of dollars even for plans that offer the same basic benefits.

This high-deductible health plan must be your only health insurance — you can't be covered by any other health insurance. A Caution about Comparisons and Cost Estimates Because mandates can drive up the cost of health insurance, it would be easy to assume that the states with the most mandates would also have the highest premiums. If you have a spouse who uses your insurance as secondary coverage, he or she also must be enrolled in a high-deductible plan.
