You have questions. wE have answers.
-To be an eligible individual and qualify for an HSA, you must meet the following requirements:
- You are covered by a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)
- You are not enrolled in Medicare
- You cannot be claimed as a dependent on someone’s tax return
- Are age 18 or older
- You are not covered by other health insurance that provides the same benefits also covered by your HDHP.
-Unfortunately, you cannot establish and contribute to an HSA unless you have coverage under an HDHP.
-You’re not eligible for an HSA after you’ve enrolled in Medicare. If you had an HSA before you enrolled in Medicare, you can keep it. However, you cannot continue to make contributions to an HSA after you enroll in Medicare.
-There are no income limits that affect HSA eligibility.
-You may not begin contributing to you HSA until the effective date of your HDHP coverage.
Your maximum annual HSA contribution is based on the limit sent by the Department of Treasury for your type of coverage (self-only or family). The effective date of your HDHP coverage may affect your contribution limit.
-No, it’s your responsibility to keep track of the amounts deposited and spent from your account, just like a normal savings or checking account.
