Beware National 1St

This regional credit union used to be wider in scope, so their poor service and products do not impact as many customers now.

They have an HSA savings account that used to have a pretty good rate.  BUT then they dropped the rates, and capped it, with a max to receive their teaser rate to be $6250 (lower than IRS limits for annual contributions).  So subsequent annual contributions will only get .005%.  You can do better at dozens of other banks or credit unions.

Lastly, they really do present a "we don't care" attitude.  They will probably have to do mergers to grow their business.
