Medical insurance scheme with interest

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

 

I have a question regarding health saving account offered by my company as a part of medical insurance. Company is putting some money in this account for only medical use but the issue is account type. Account is saving account and will earn the interest. Though I am trying to spend the money before end of month to save for any interest but still sometimes I can see few dollars or pennies as interest. What do you suggest? 

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

 

Your question is not clear. Do you also contribute to the savings account? If so, is it compulsory or voluntary? Who will be the account holder?

 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
