When you enroll in the High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) medical insurance option, BNY Mellon will be notified of your health insurance plan enrollment and send a new account welcome kit. The welcome kit will provide instructions for activating the Health Savings Account (HSA). Accounts can be activated online by visiting the website hsamember.com ; for assistance with the activation process, please call 877-472-4200.
Once the account is activated with BNY Mellon a debit card will be issued. The welcome kit also contains a signature card (the signature card is also available online); you will receive a checkbook for use with your account if the signature card is returned.
If you choose to open a HSA with another financial institution, you will need to inquire with the institution about the process for opening a new account.
