The IRS released the 2022 Health Savings Account (HSA) contribution limits, the minimum required HDHP deductibles, and the HDHP out-of-pocket maximums.  Each year, the IRS reviews these figures based on a cost-of-living adjustment.  The figures below pertain to HSAs and HSA-qualified High Deductible Health Plans.

2022 Annual HSA Contribution Limits

Single:  $3,650 ($50 increase from 2021)

Family:  $7,300 ($100 increase from 2021)

2022 Annual Minimum HDHP Required Deductibles

Single:  $1,400 (No change from 2021)

Family:  $2,800 (No change from 2021)


2022 HDHP Out-of-Pocket Maximums

Single:  $7,050 ($50 increase from 2021)

Family:  $14,100 ($100 increase from 2021)

Federal rules permit catch-up contributions to HSAs if the accountholder is 55 or older, allowing an increase in annual contributions up to an additional $1,000 per year.  Accountholders are eligible for this extra contribution if they are 55 years or older, or turning 55 anytime during that year.  If the accountholder’s spouse is also turning 55, the spouse cannot contribute their catch-up contribution to the accountholder’s HSA.  However, if the spouse meets the eligibility requirements, they can open their own HSA and contribute catch-up contributions to that account.
