Frequently Asked HSA Questions

  • What is an HSA?

    A health savings account (HSA) allows you to save tax-advantaged money (pre-tax for contributions made from paychecks, tax deductions for direct contributions) to be spent on qualified medical expenses. Those can include most medical, dental and pharmacy bills, co-payments and coinsurance. The most common way to access these funds is with an HSA debit card.

    You can also reimburse yourself from the account for your own medical expenses paid out-of-pocket (expense requirements are quite liberal). This means you're spending "tax-free" money for most medical costs, creating enormous potential tax savings when utilizing an HSA.

  • Who is eligible to open an HSA?

    Your health insurance must be classified as an HSA-eligible High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). This insurance coverage type charges lower-than-normal premium payments, but the minimum HDHP deductible amount is high and changes annually.

    In 2021, the minimum deductible is at least $1,400 for an individual and $2,800 for a family plan.

    You can't contribute to an HSA once you start receiving Medicare Part A benefits.

  • What designates a qualifying High Deductible Health Plan?

    A High-Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) is a health insurance plan traditionally defined by lower premiums and higher deductibles. For a health plan to be considered a qualifying, high-deductible health plan, or HSA-eligible, it must meet the IRS's annual minimum deductible and out-of-pocket maximum set annually. These two amounts are indexed annually for inflation.

    The health insurance plan must also be designed so that the individual or family (two or more individuals) pay the cost of healthcare up to the deductible before any insurance kicks in (preventative care excluded from this definition).

  • How much can I contribute to an HSA?

    The maximum contribution limits for 2021 are $3,600 for individuals and $7,200 for families. If you are 55 or older, you can contribute an additional $1,000 catch-up contribution.

    You can read more about contribution limits in our HSA Guide.
