HSA Inflationary Adjustments for 2019 (article)

In Revenue Procedure 2018-30, the IRS released the 2019 cost of living adjustments relating to health savings accounts (HSA). For 2019, the individual and family contribution limits and out-of-pocket (OOP) limits will increase.  The annual high deductible health plan (HDHP) deductible limits remain the same.


Individual/Self Only






HDHP Annual Deductible









HDHP Annual Out-of-Pocket Limit*









Contribution Limit










*Note: The out-of-pocket (OOP) limits applicable to high deductible health plans used in conjunction with HSAs differ slightly from the Affordable Care Act’s imposed OOP limits, which for 2018, the OOP is $7,350 for self-only; $14,700 for other than self-only coverage.  In 2019, the OOP limits increase to $7,900 for self-only, $15,800 for other than self-only coverage.  Also important to remember that under the Affordable Care Act, for a family plan, no individual can be subject to an OOP greater than the individual OOP limit.

General reminders about HSA limits:

  • The $1,000 catch up contribution available to accountholders aged 55 and over is not tied to a cost of living adjustment and thus, remains at $1,000.
  • With regard to the family deductible, any embedded deductible can be no lower than the minimum family statutory deductible limit.
