  • Can an employer contribute different amounts to different employees?

    Employer contributions to eligible employees’ HSAs must be treated as comparable. Comparable contributions must be made to all eligible employees enrolled in a qualifying HDHP, are in the same category of employment (full-time, part-time, former employees, and collectively bargained), same category of coverage (self, self +1, self +2, self +3). In order for it to be considered comparable, an employer must contribute the same dollar amount or percentage amount to everyone in that category. Additionally, the higher coverage categories can’t have a lower contribution amount compared to the lower coverage (self +1 has to be greater than self).

  • Are employer contributions tax-deductible?

    For sole proprietors, partnerships, and S-corporations, contributions to a partner’s HSA will be treated as a distribution to the partner and included in the partner’s income and may be deductible by the partner but not by the business. For larger corporations (e.g., C-corps), employer contributions are treated as employer provided coverage for medical expenses under an accident or health plan and therefore tax-deductible.

  • What happens if an employee leaves the company?

    Employees own their HSA and continue to do so if they leave your company or the health plan.

    Once Lively receives the termination information, we convert the HSA from an employee account to an individual account and remove the employee’s association to your company. We will send them communications around the ongoing benefits of their Lively HSA and inform them the account is fee-free for them moving forward.
