HSAs Grow by 32 Percent

America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) just released their annual report on Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). The 32 percent growth rate of HSAs in 2008 was very similar to the growth rates in 2006 and 2007. Assuming that rate continues, there will be 32 million Americans in HSAs in 5 years and 128 million in 10 years.

HSAs are exploding in popularity, yet many (a majority?) in Congress want them dead. Stay tuned…

    Good news. And the beat goes on.

    Unfortunately, I think these accounts are at great risk in any kind of health reform this year.

    Just imagine if the media wrote about the tax free HSA how the enrollments would soar. With thousands of articles on health care reform in the press there was only one article about HSAs last Sunday and that was a letter to the editor in the St. Petersburg Times.

    It’s the same across the nation, HSA discrimination.

    It is indeed a great news! It shows how much important the HSA, a high deductible health plan is for people. I have one question regarding HSA. Whether it reimburse cosmetic surgery expense and if yes then how much in percentage.
