Important HSA Notes

  • The 2021 tax filing deadline was extended by one month. HSA owners have until May 17 to contribute for the 2020 year.
  • HSA funds may be used for a long list of eligible healthcare expenses, including COVID-19 PPE, OTC medications, and menstrual care products.
  • An HSA is owned by the participant (not employer), who may keep and use the account for life, regardless of their employment status.
  • Account owners may fund their HSA from a personal IRA (traditional or Roth) once in their lifetime. The contribution counts towards the annual contribution limit.

2022 Excepted Benefit HRA Limits

The IRS also announced the limits for EBHRAs. The annual limit will remain at $1,800. An EBHRA is an employer-funded benefit which can be used for “excepted benefits” such as dental and vision plan premiums, eligible expenses, long-term disability premiums, and COBRA, among others.
