Who funds the Health Savings Accounts (HSA)?
For employees enrolled in a QHDHP, the employer and the employee can contribute funds up to limits set by the IRS. The county’s 1-time contribution, called “seed money,” is outlined in the collective bargaining agreement or in the Unrepresented Resolution as applicable. Seed money is available for 1st-time QHDHP enrollees only.

If you enroll in the QHDHP and want to personally contribute to an HSA, you must annually complete an HSA Payroll Deduction form. 2017 HSA Payroll Deduction Form
