Frequently Asked Questions

Can business owners not eligible for a health reimbursement arrangement (HRA) establish an HSA?
Yes. This includes owners of S corps, sole proprietors, LLCs, LLPs and partnerships. However, these individuals cannot use pretax dollars via a cafeteria plan to fund their HSA. These individuals are eligible to make post- tax contributions to their HSA and claim a deduction when they file their taxes. We recommend you consult your tax advisor in this situation, as special rules apply.
Do both employer and employee contributions count toward the annual contribution maximum?
Yes. Both employer and employee contributions are combined with calculating the maximum.
Do you have an FDIC-insured HSA plan?
Yes, our Capital Blue Cross Select HSA plan is FDIC-insured.
What HSA investment options are available?

If desired, the account holder can leave the entire HSA balance at Capital Blue Cross, where it earns interest, or choose to invest a portion of it. Once an HSA base balance exceeds $1,000, the account holder can open a basic, self-directed investment account, which gives access to more than 30 no-load and load-waived pre-selected mutual funds. At least $1,000 must be kept in the base balance of the HSA account.

In addition, when the basic investment account balance exceeds $10,000, the account holder can open a self-directed brokerage investment account with Charles Schwab. This account allows access to more than 2,500 mutual funds from a variety of families, as well as stocks, bonds, and other investments.

How is an HSA funded?
Contributions to an HSA can come from the account holder, the employer, or both. The HSA contribution limits for individual or family health plans change annually and are as follows:
