People in Boulder typically demand different types of healthcare than any other demographic. They take better care of themselves, they’re healthier don’t go to the doctor as often and prefer to use more holistic forms of treatment like chiropractic and hypnotherapy. This calls for a different type of health insurance policy, like an HSA qualified plan, that doesn’t have wasteful services like doctors visit or prescription drug copays. Instead, these services can be paid for out of the health savings account with pre-tax dollars. An HSA qualified plan isn’t always the best option, but is worth comparing. Just make sure your plan is actually HSA qualified before setting up the health savings account with it!
