Maximum HSA Contribution Level Will Increase in 2010











Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) May 27, 2009

According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the maximum contribution that individuals can make to their Health Savings Accounts (HSA) will increase in 2010 from $ 3,000 (in 2009) to $ 3,050. HSA family plan contributions will increase from $ 5,950 (in 2009) to $ 6,150.

Along with this maximum contribution increase, out-of-pocket employee expenses will also increase, including deductibles. In 2009, the maximum out-of-pocket expense was $ 5,800 for an individual and $ 11,600 for a family. These maximum expenses will increase to $ 5,950 for an individual and $ 11,900 for a family.

“We find that most of our customers like to contribute as much as possible to their HSA,” said Wiley Long, President of HSA for America. “The more pre-tax money you can put aside each year, the more you’ll have growing to help you cover your future medical expenses.”

Minimum deductibles will also increase. Deductibles for high-deductible HSA plans will increase from $ 1,150 to $ 1,200 for individual coverage and $ 1,150 to $ 2,300 for family coverage.

“The best way for our customers to continue to manage their finances smartly is to do their best to contribute the maximum amount possible towards their HSA plans”, said Long. “They should then take good care of their health. That way the money grows tax-deferred, and can act as an additional retirement account.”

Health savings accounts are available to anyone who has a qualifying high-deductible health insurance plan. The number of people with HSA-qualified health insurance plans has grown by 30% in the past year, to over 8 million people.
