On May 10, 2018, the IRS released the 2019 limits for high-deductible health plans and health savings accounts. These limits reflect adjustments made for cost of living changes.
Health Savings Accounts: The 2019 contribution limit for health savings accounts is $3,500 for individuals, marking a $50 increase in the limit for 2018. For families, the 2019 contribution limit is $7,000, which is $100 higher than the restored 2018 limit.
High-Deductible Health Plans: The 2019 minimum annual deductible for a qualifying high-deductible health plan is $1,350 for self-only coverage and $2,700 for family coverage. These minimums did not change from 2018.
For self-only high-deductible health plan coverage, the limit for out-of-pocket expenses for 2019 is $6,750 for self-only coverage and $13,500 for family coverage. These limits are $100 and $200 higher than the 2018 limits, respectively. Out-of-pocket expenses include coinsurance, copayments, and deductibles, but do not include premiums.
