On Tuesday, May 16, 2023, the IRS released 2024 indexing for health savings accounts (HSAs) and excepted benefit health reimbursement arrangements (EBHRAs). Elevated inflation has once again led to significantly increased limits.
The HSA limits address both the cost-sharing requirements of the underlying high deductible health plan (HDHP) and how much can be contributed to an individual’s HSA for that calendar year. For HDHPs with an embedded per-person deductible for family coverage, the per-person deductible will need to be at least $3,200 for the plan year that begins in 2024.
|HDHP Minimum Deductible||Single coverage
(note a per-person deductible would have to meet the minimum family deductible requirement)
|HDHP Maximum Total Out-of-Pocket (OOP)||Single coverage
(note the per-person limit for non-grandfathered health plans)
|HSA Annual Contribution Limit||Single coverage
(plus $1,000 per HSA account holder age 55+ on Dec 31)
|EBHRA Limit||Employer may provide up to this limit per employee for an EBHRA||$1,950||$2,100|
IMA will continue to monitor regulator guidance and offer meaningful, practical, and timely information.
