Lake Geneva, WI (www.allCUnews.com) May 29, 2008 -- HSA Clearing Corp, the leader in complete and affordable turn key Health Savings Account programs, will be offering their free HSA Set-Up webinars this summer for Credit Unions.

"Our summer series of webinars has been extremely successful the last two years, and we will continue our HSA Set-Up webinars this year. A large percentage of group health insurance programs are renewed each year during the fall open enrollment season. If Credit Unions have their HSA programs ready to go by the fall, they will have an excellent opportunity to capture new HSA deposits from both existing and potential members. It is essential they be ready to activate their program in a short time, and these institutions are looking to HSA Clearing Corp because we can get them up and running in a matter of days without spending a lot of time and money on a costly integration program" said Tim Morales, President of HSA Clearing Corp.

HSA Clearing Corp will detail: how easy it is to have their Credit Union set up in just a few days to offer HSAs to their members; why it is important to offer investment options; why there is difference in using HSA Financial and other providers and what is the credit union ROI? Attendees will also hear success stories from Credit Unions that are already using HSA Clearing Corp's HSA program.

"Mr. HSA" Roy Ramthun, Senior VP will explain to the credit unions how Health Savings Accounts work and exactly what responsibilities the Credit Union will have for an HSA program.
Prior to joining HSA Clearing Corp, Mr. Ramthun was the senior health policy advisor to President George W. Bush regarding health care issues involving the Internal Revenue Code primarily Health Savings Accounts. Before joining the President's staff, Mr. Ramthun was the Senior Advisor to the Secretary of the U.S. Treasury for health initiatives. In this role, he led Treasury's implementation of Health Savings Accounts after they were enacted into law in December, 2003.

A recent study by America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) of U.S. health insurance carriers shows that the number of people covered by health savings account/high-deductible health plans (HSA/HDHPs) totaled 6.1 million in January 2008. This report shows that the HSA program is working and growing across the country.

Offering Health Savings Accounts provides an excellent opportunity for credit unions to capture part of this growing market.
