Health Savings Accounts: 2013 Cost of Living Adjustments

In Rev Proc 2012-26, the IRS released the 2013 cost of living adjustments (COLA) for health savings accounts.  The HDHP minimum deductibles, out-of pocket limits, and the statutory HSA contribution amounts, have increased slightly.  The $1,000 catch up contribution available to accountholders aged 55 and over is not subject to a cost of living adjustment and thus, remains at $1,000.
