The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has published inflation-adjusted limits for health savings accounts (HSAs) and high deductible health plans (HDHPs) for the 2010 year. The chart below compares 2009 and the new 2010 figures.
*For the 2010 calendar year, an HDHP is defined as a health care plan with an annual deductible that is not less than $1,200 for self-only coverage or $2,400 for family coverage (compared to $1,150 and $2,300 respectively for the 2009 plan year).
The annual catch-up amount for HSA eligible individuals who are age 55 and older by definition of the statute remains at $1,000 for 2010.
The new limits and maximums are effective January 1, 2010.
