IRS Announces 2025 Limits for Health Savings Accounts, High-Deductible Health Plans and Excepted Benefit HRAs


The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently announced (see Revenue Procedure 2024-25) cost-of-living adjustments to the applicable dollar limits for health savings accounts (HSAs), high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) and excepted benefit health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs) for 2025. All of the dollar limits currently in effect for 2024 will change for 2025, with the exception of one limit. The HSA catch-up contribution for individuals ages 55 and older will not change as it is not subject to cost-of-living adjustments.

The table below compares the applicable dollar limits for HSAs, HDHPs and excepted benefit HRAs for 2024 and 2025.

HDHP – Maximum annual out-of-pocket limit (excluding premiums)
Self-only coverage $8,050 $8,300
Family coverage $16,100 $16,600
HDHP – Minimum annual deductible
Self-only coverage $1,600 $1,650
Family coverage $3,200 $3,300

Plan sponsors should update payroll and plan administration systems for the 2025 cost-of-living adjustments and incorporate the new limits in relevant participant communications, such as open enrollment and communication materials, plan documents and summary plan descriptions.
