For eligible individuals, a Health Savings Account (HSA) offers a tax-favorable way to set aside funds (or have an employer do so) to meet future medical needs. Some of the tax benefits: 1) Contributions are deductible, within limits; 2) Earnings on the funds in the HSA aren’t taxed; 3) Contributions an employer makes aren’t taxed to you; and 4) Distributions to cover qualified medical expenses ar en’t taxed. An eligible employee must be covered by a “high deductible health plan.” For 2021, a high deductible health plan has an annual deductible of at least $1,400 for self-only coverage or $2,800 for family coverage. An individual can contribute $3,600 ($7,200 for a family) to an HSA for 2021.
