HSA/HDHP Limits Will Increase for 2025

IRS Releases ACA Pay-or-Play PenaltiesOn May 9, 2024, the IRS released Revenue Procedure 2024-25 to provide the inflation-adjusted limits for health savings accounts (HSAs) and high deductible health plans (HDHPs) for 2025. The IRS is required to publish these limits by June 1 of each year.

These limits include the following:

  • The maximum HSA contribution limit;
  • The minimum deductible amount for HDHPs; and
  • The maximum out-of-pocket expense limit for HDHPs.

These limits vary based on whether an individual has self-only or family coverage under an HDHP. Eligible individuals with self-only HDHP coverage will be able to contribute $4,300 to their HSAs for 2025, up from $4,150 for 2024. Eligible individuals with family HDHP coverage will be able to contribute $8,550 to their HSAs for 2025, up from $8,300 for 2024. Individuals age 55 and older may make an additional $1,000 “catch-up” contribution to their HSAs.

The minimum deductible amount for HDHPs increases to $1,650 for self-only coverage and $3,300 for family coverage for 2025 (up from $1,600 for self-only coverage and $3,200 for family coverage for 2024). The HDHP maximum out-of-pocket expense limit increases to $8,300 for self-only coverage and $16,600 for family coverage for 2025 (up from $8,050 for self-only coverage and $16,100 for family coverage for 2024).

Action Steps

Employers sponsoring HDHPs should review their plan’s cost-sharing limits (i.e., the minimum deductible amount and maximum out-of-pocket expense limit) when preparing for the plan year beginning in 2025. Also, employers allowing employees to make pre-tax HSA contributions should update their plan communications with the increased contribution limits.
