Out-of-pocket healthcare costs are skyrocketing each year, forcing people across America to make difficult decisions about their health and money. This is more true now than ever. In response to Coronavirus, we understand that your healthcare is top of mind. You can rely on Lively for accurate and timely IRS or legislative changes related to Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), so you can save on the costs of healthcare today and plan for the costs of tomorrow. We are here to keep you informed. Continue to watch this page for the latest developments.
Beginning January 1, 2022 the IRS has changed how an HSA-eligible health plan can cover telehealth visits without jeopardizing participants’ HSA-eligibility, depending on when the plan year started. Please note that telehealth remains an eligible HSA expense for all account owners, meaning you can still use your HSA to pay for your share of telehealth visits.
- If your HSA-qualified health plan year began before January 1, 2022, telehealth visits may be covered at no cost to you prior to your deductible being met.
- If your HSA-qualified health plan year began January 1, 2022 or later, telehealth visits are subject to your deductible.
