HSA Expert Certificate Available Online from ABA
The Health Savings Account Expert Certificate, offered by the ABA HSA Council and HSA Consulting Services,
is a new online resource for bankers to learn about administering account-based health insurance products.
HSAs help consumers and employers by providing a tool for planning, saving and paying for health care.
The certificate helps bank employees educate both consumer and business clients, administer HSAs and
manage the compliance risks associated with these accounts. “Training and compliance resources are
paramount in today's regulatory environment and learning from our experts, who number among the inventors of
this industry, will be indispensable to examinations and customer satisfaction,” said ABA’s Kevin McKechnie.
