Re: Health Insurance with HSA Option

Also, don't forget that it's $2,600 for an individual policy, and $5,000 for a family (more than 1 person) policy, so if your deductibles are higher than $2,500, you might be able to up that contribution.
Yes, I'd forgotten that. OTOH, since I'm starting in September my max will be a third of $5K since I'll only have it for four months.

The short answer to your question is no. There are, as you would expect from a program that has to meet IRS rules, many qualifiers beyond the deductible amount.

A good source of information on the ins and out of HSA plans is

Although rare, it is possible to read something on this forum you don't agree with and simply move on with your life
