    Pretty steady growth. As people become more educated about HSA’s they are understanding the value.

  2. Tommy says:

    Pretty encouraging. Seems that as HSA’s become more well-known and available, people are opting for lower premiums and deductibles and having more flexibility with their health accounts.

    • Tara says:

      True, I doubt such an exponential growth would mean otherwise. Just shows that more flexibility and independence given to the individual provides for better care in the end.

  3. Timmy says:

    This is an encouraging graph. I don’t think the numbers will stop increasing.

  4. Timmy says:

    Does the expansion in large group coverage show that employers are gravitating toward HSA’s with much more frequency?

  5. Buster says:

    That’s yet another step in the right direction but I’ll wait to celebrate until the news reads 300 million people are covered either by a HSA, HRA, high-deductible plan or some other consumer-friendly health plan.

  6. Frugal Nurse says:

    I’ve had an HSA for years, but I don’t know if I will be able to keep it come January 2014 because of the ACA’s “actuarial value” rules for insurance plans. My premiums are low, but I have a high deductible. I’m also over 30. Even my insurance company doesn’t know what will happen to HSA plans. Frustrating.
