General HSA Enrollment

How to apply for a tax-advantaged Health Savings Account.

ALEC makes it easy to open, contribute to and manage an HSA. Here are some key things to know. 


Step 1: Apply

You can apply by visiting an ALEC Service Center or by calling us at 800.762.9988, ext. 484.


Step 2: Automatic Contributions

If you are an Abbott employee and were an ALEC Health Savings Account holder in the prior year AND made benefit contributions into that HSA in the prior year, you may elect to continue with your ALEC HSA during the current benefit enrollment period.

If you are an Abbott employee and were not an ALEC Health Savings Account holder in the prior year, you will be directed via the Abbott benefit enrollment system to select another HSA provider.

2017 AbbVie Change: If you are an AbbVie employee and were an ALEC Health Savings Account holder in the prior year, you may elect to continue with your ALEC HSA during the benefit enrollment period, but your contributions from your AbbVie payroll deductions are after tax.

If you work for a different company, please contact your Human Resources Department concerning HSA payroll deduction.
