A Monroe Bank & Trust Heath Savings Account (HSA) offers an alternative way to either afford health care or pay for expenses that might not be covered under your insurance plan.  

With MBT’s Health Savings Account, there’s no need to request reimbursement or submit receipts. You simply use your HSA debit card or checks to pay expenses, or reimburse yourself by withdrawing money from your HSA. It’s that simple! (IRS regulations apply.)

Plus, your unused balance rolls over year after year, so you can’t lose money you don’t spend. Best of all, with an MBT HSA, it’s possible to enjoy significant tax savings, with tax-deferred medical savings growth!
