SDM Accounting Insights: Is an HSA right for you?
A Health Savings Account (HSA) offers tax-advantaged funding of health care costs. If you have a qualified high-deductible health plan, you can contribute to an HSA sponsored by your employer or set up by you. You own the account, which can bear interest or be invested. It can grow tax-deferred, similar to an IRA. Withdrawals for qualified medical expenses are tax-free, and you can carry over a balance from year to year. So unlike Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), undistributed balances in HSAs aren’t forfeited at year end. For 2019, the deductible contribution limits are $3,500 self-only, $7,000 family. Contact us with questions or if you need help setting up an HSA.
