“HSA + HDHP” represents the concept of offering a Health Savings Account (HSA) coupled with a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). For 2019, an HDHP must have a deductible of at least $1,350 for single coverage or $2,700 for family coverage. Your business and the employee combined can make pretax HSA contributions up to $3,500 for single coverage or $7,000 for family coverage. And HSA balances carry over to subsequent years. HDHP premiums are typically less, so savings can be used to fund the HSAs. It’s an increasingly popular formula; contact us to discuss.
