Maximum Health Savings Account Contribution to Rise in 2010

By Staff Report

May. 18, 2009

The maximum contributions that can be made to health savings accounts in 2010 will increase, as will the minimum deductible imposed by health insurance plans linked to HSAs and the maximum out-of-pocket expenses that employees can be required to pay, the Internal Revenue Service said last week.


The maximum contribution that can be made to an HSA in 2010 for employees with single coverage will be $3,050, up from $3,000 in 2009. The maximum HSA contribution for those with family coverage will rise to $6,150, up from $5,950.


Additionally, the maximum out-of-pocket expense, including deductibles, that employees can be required to pay next year will rise to $5,950 for single coverage, up from $5,800 this year, and $11,900 for family coverage, up from $11,600.


The minimum deductible of the high-deductible health insurance plan to which HSAs must be linked will increase next year to $1,200 for single coverage and $2,400 for family coverage. The current minimum deductibles are $1,150 for single coverage and $2,300 for family coverage.


The new limits that the IRS announced Thursday, May 14, reflect increases in the cost of living.
