IRS Announces 2019 HSA Inflation Adjustments

IRS building

The IRS recently announced its annual cost-of-living adjustments affecting health savings accounts (HSAs) for calendar year 2019. The annual limit on deductible contributions to an HSA will jump by $50 for individuals and $100 for families next year.

Notably, high-deductible health plan (HDHP) out-of-pocket maximums for families will also increase in 2019, even though they were reduced earlier this year. HDHP minimum required deductibles remain unchanged.

  • HSA Contribution Limits – The 2019 annual HSA contribution limit for individuals with self-only HDHP coverage remains rises to $3,500, while the limit for individuals with family HDHP coverage goes up to $7,000.
  • HDHP Minimum Required Deductibles – The 2019 minimum annual deductible for self-only HDHP coverage stays at $1,350; for family HDHP coverage, $2,700.
  • HDHP Out-of-Pocket Maximum – The 2019 maximum limit on out-of-pocket expenses, including deductibles, for family HDHP coverage is $6,900... the same amount it was this year before it was lowered to $6,850 in response to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The limit for self-only HDHP coverage (which was not affected by the Act) is $3,450.
