“For all those hoping HSA’s get expanded, looks like the government is moving in the opposite direction. On March 5, 2018, the IRS released Revenue Procedure 2018-18 (as part of Bulletin 2018-10). Due to changes made in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, certain adjustments needed to be made to inflation amounts. This includes a reduction in the maximum family HSA contribution for those with family coverage under an HDHP from $6,900 to a new limit of $6,850 for calendar year 2018. The single contribution limit remains unchanged at $3,450 per year. This reduction affects employees participating in an HSA Plan who have elected to contribute more than $6,850 for family coverage in 2018.” ~D.C., Employee Healthcare Strategist; March 7, 2018

“Main problem I see with this proposed legislation is that there is no provision for HSA use to cover the cost of membership to Direct Primary Care or Concierge medical practices.” ~J.C.; March 7, 2018; LinkedIn Comment
