How can a health savings account help me?
A health savings account (HSA) is a medical savings account that allows for the payment of qualified medical expenses on a pre-tax basis (meaning taxable income for the IRS is reduced by the amount of the deposits; each state has its own rules...CA does not conform to Federal law on this). If funds are withdrawn for non-qualified expenses, the account holder will be liable for income taxes and an early withdrawal penalty.
The account is only available for those who have a health insurance plan with a high-deductible, which means those self-only plans with deductibles of $1,400+ and maximum out-of-pocket of $7,050...or family plans with deductibles of $2,800+ and max out-of-pocket of $14,100.
The max contributions for 2021 are $3,650 for self-only plans and $7,300 for family plans.
Unlike flex-spending accounts, HSA funds do not expire and can roll over year after year, allowing for accumulation if not spent.
