2014 Health Savings Account

NOTICE!If you enroll in the Health Savings Plan (HSA) or change your HDHP coverage level effective September 1, 2014 or later, you will not receive an IU Contribution to your HSA for the remainder of this calendar year.

If you elect to participate in the HSA plan, you will still be required to make the minimum contribution of $300 to your HSA. The $300 employee contribution will be divided over your remaining paychecks in the calendar year. Depending on how many paychecks are remaining in the calendar year the deduction(s) taken from your checks may be significant. For example, if you are paid Bi-Weekly and your HSA enrollment was effective October 1, 2014, you would have 5 remaining paychecks in the calendar year. Your HSA contribution would be $60 per paycheck.

If you are ineligible for tax-free contributions, you can waive the HSA portion of the plan and be enrolled only in the HDHP plan.  If you are ineligible, and elect the HSA, you are responsible for reporting the ineligible HSA contributions on your annual tax return. Consulting a tax advisor about reporting ineligible contributions is advised. 

* A spouse means one by marriage, either opposite-sex or same-sex, legally entered into in one of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, or a U.S. territory or a foreign country.  Spouses qualify for preferential federal tax treatment of health care benefits, but may not qualify for preferential state tax treatment depending on their state of residency.  In order to correctly apply state taxes, a same-sex spouse must be registered with the University.

Note: While Domestic partners and their children are eligible for IU-sponsored health care plan coverage, registered domestic partnerships, civil unions or similar formal relationships recognized under state law are not recognized by the IRS for preferential tax treatment.  HSA funds cannot be used for the domestic partner's health expenses unless they qualify as the employee's tax dependent or spouse.
