Schwab Health Savings Brokerage Account

With a Schwab Health Savings Brokerage Account (HSBA), you can invest in a health savings account with the freedom of a brokerage account.

What is it?

Schwab HSBA is a self-directed brokerage account that resides within your Health Savings Account (HSA). In addition to the investment choices typically offered by a Health Savings Account, an HSBA lets you invest in a wide range of investment options to include stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).

How it works:

  • Your Health Savings Account provider must offer a brokerage option as part of your HSA, in order for you to open an account.
  • You decide how much money to transfer from your HSA into your HSBA.
  • You can invest your HSBA assets in any eligible investment option for health savings accounts.
  • Watch the HSBA Getting Started video for a detailed look at how to research, trade and monitor your HSBA investments.

Who would benefit from an HSBA?

HSBA is appropriate for knowledgeable, experienced investors who:

  • Are seeking a wider range of investments
  • Can dedicate more time to managing their investments
  • Are comfortable making more of their own investing decisions

Schwab is restricted from providing advice on HSBAs; however, your HSA program provider may allow you to appoint an investment advisor.

  • More investment choices. Select from thousands of investments available through Schwab.
