Unspent money is portable and rolls over into the next benefit year to cover expenses or to continue earning interest tax free.  HSAs also differ in that you can take your money with you if you switch employers, or even if you change health insurers.

As you add funds into your account, your contributions reduce your annual taxable income.  The funds you withdraw to pay for qualified medical expenses remain untaxed and you save again when funds in your HSA accounts earn interest tax free.

Employee Association

The Employee Association is a nonprofit organization that was formed in 2008 in an effort to aid Sun Health team members in times of need. The concept of the organization began when a team member approached management with a request to hold a bake sale to assist with fellow team members’ medical bills. With more than 400 team members on staff at that time, leaders saw a tremendous opportunity to create a formal plan to support our team members in need. As a result, the Employee Association was formed.

Over the years, the Association has brought relief and support to many team members in need and is sure to positively impact the lives of many more to come. The Employee Association is just one of the ways Sun Health shows its gratitude for our team members’ commitment to our mission to champion healthy living, research and superior health care.


This association was created to provide monetary assistance to the members of the Sun Health Employee Association for circumstances such as the occurrence of any unexpected event or combination of circumstances that jeopardize the individual’s health and welfare.
Example of undue hardships include:

  • Offering assistance in time of need e. g. funeral expenses for the death of an immediate family member or the travel costs to see an ailing close relative.
  • Living expenses due to damage caused to team members dwelling
    (fire or storm)
  • Significant loss of household income due to events such as robbery or emergency medical expenses.

Specific guidelines for what would be eligible for consideration can be found in the Employee Association FAQs.
