The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced a reduced Health Savings Account (HSA) contribution rate for families with High Deductible Health Plans (HDHPs). The 2018 maximum family contribution rate will be $6850 instead of the $6900 limit that had previously been announced. The maximum self contribution for 2018 will remain $3450.
The IRS has cited recent tax changes and inflation-related increases as the reasons for the change. The new family contribution limit is effective immediately and any contributions over the limit could be subject to taxes and penalties.
