The IRS has released its 2023 annual inflation adjustments for Health Savings Accounts (“HSAs”) as determined under Section 223 of the Internal Revenue Code. Specifically, IRS Revenue Procedure 2022-24 provides the adjusted limits for contributions to a HSA, as well as the high deductible health plan (“HDHP”) minimums and maximums for calendar year 2023.
Additionally, Revenue Procedure 2022-24 sets forth the maximum amount that may be made newly available for excepted-benefit health reimbursement arrangements (“HRAs”) as provided under 26 CFR 54.9831-1(c)(3)(viii).
The 2023 HSA/HDHP limits are as follows:
- Annual Contribution Limit
- Single Coverage: $3,850
- Family Coverage: $7,750
- HDHP-Minimum Deductible
- Single Coverage: $1,500
- Family Coverage: $3,000
- HDHP-Maximum Annual Out-of-Pocket Expenses (including deductibles, co-payments and other amounts, but not including premiums)
- Single Coverage: $7,500
- Family Coverage: $15,000
- The catch-up contribution for eligible individuals age 55 or older by year end remains at $1,000.
Plans and related documentation, including employee communications, should be updated to reflect these new limits which are effective for calendar year 2023.
As always, please keep in mind that participation in a health FSA (or any other non-HDHP) will result in HSA ineligibility, unless the health FSA is limited to: (1) limited-scope dental or vision excepted benefits; and/or (2) post-deductible expenses.
The 2023 EBHRA limit is as follows:
The maximum amount that may be made newly available for the plan year for an excepted benefit HRA (“EBHRA) is $1,950. This amount is effective for plan years beginning in 2023.
