With HSAs slated to play a pivotal role in health care reform, contribution limits may soon be uncoupled from traditional inflation increases and will give Americans much greater capacity for care-related tax savings.
Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) May 08, 2017
In an effort to provide needed guidance to brokers and employers, ConnectYourCare, (CYC)--a national leader in consumer-directed health care account solutions--is announcing the inflation-adjusted limits for Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), set forth annually by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
The new 2018 HSA contribution limits include:
Maximum HSA Contribution Level
- $3,450 for individual coverage
- $6,900 for family coverage
Minimum Deductible for Qualifying High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)
- $1,350 for individual coverage
- $2,700 for family coverage
Maximum Out-of-Pocket Expenses for HDHP
- $6,650 for individual coverage
- $13,300 for family coverage
The new limits increase the pre-tax amounts individuals and families may contribute to their HSA over 2017 limits by $50 and $150, respectively, while the deductible for qualifying plans increase by $50 individuals and $100 for families. Out-of-pocket maximums are up $100 for individuals and $200 for families over 2017 limits.
“HSA limit increases are currently tied to inflation, but with HSAs slated to play a pivotal role in health care reform, contribution limits may soon be uncoupled from traditional inflation increases and will give Americans much greater capacity for care-related tax savings,” noted Harrison Stone, General Counsel, ConnectYourCare.
