HSA + HDHP = cost-effective health care funding
Abstract: Because of the rising cost of health care, individuals are looking for cost-effective ways to fund it. The combination of a Health Savings Account (HSA) and a high-deductible health plan (HDHP) is one solution. This article explains the basics of how they operate together, what it takes to qualify, and why this solution might be better for some than for others. A sidebar shows the 2012 HSA contribution limits and HDHP costs.
