No Change in Cost of Living Adjustments for HSAs

In Rev Proc 2010-22, the IRS released 2011 cost of living adjustments (COLA) for health savings accounts; however, you will note that there are no adjustments for 2011.  A COLA is based on the cost of living index; which has dropped; and thus, there are no increases for 2011.

Following are annual deductible amounts for a high deductible health plan (HDHP) used in conjunction with a health savings account (HSA), and limits for out-of pocket expenses and contributions.
