2020 HSA Limits Set to Moderately Rise

Health Savings Account Limits Set to Moderately Rise in 2020.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) just released the Health Savings Account (HSA) limits to take effect on January 1, 2020.

The changes are outlined in the table below compared to the 2019 HSA limits.

Here is a link to the IRS ruling.

In addition to the deductible amount, your plan must meet other criteria in order for participants to take advantage of an HSA. For example, the HSA must be paired with a High Deductible Health Plan and the deductible must apply to all covered health services except preventative services.

Also, the out-of-pocket maximum cannot be higher than the IRS designated amount. You should always consult your HR or Benefits departments with any questions on 2020 HSA limits or other high deductible health plan details.
