Medical Savings Account (MSA)

An Archer MSA is a tax-exempt trust or custodial account that you set up with a U.S. financial institution (such as a bank or an insurance company) in which you can save money exclusively for future medical expenses. To patrticipate in an Archer MSA you must be either self-employed or an employee of an eligible small employer. MSA contributions are deductible, subject to limits, as an adjustment to income.
