IRS Raises 2019 HSA Contribution Limits
In Revenue Procedure 2018-30, the IRS issued the annual inflation-adjusted contribution, deductible and out-of-pocket expense limits for 2019 for HSAs.
Under Sec. 223, individuals who participate in a high-deductible health plan (HDHP) are permitted a deduction for contributions to HSAs set up to help pay their medical expenses. The contribution deduction limit is subject to an annual inflation adjustment.
The amount that individuals may contribute annually to their health savings accounts (HSAs) for self-only coverage will rise by $50 next year. For HSAs linked to family coverage, the contribution cap will rise by $100.
For clear comparison, we have outlined the changes from 2018 to 2019.
