Are you or your client considering adding the new Carry-Over provision to your Flex Plan? The IRS recently issued important guidance on how this Carry-Over provision impacts HSAs. If not set up correctly, the Carry-Over provision will invalidate many HSA contributions, resulting in a loss of deduction and penalties. My Bulletin describes how to create Fail-Safe language that guards against these issues.
This Information Bulletin is a must-read for:
any employer that has adopted (or is contemplating adopting) the new IRS Carry-Over provision and also offers an HSA-qualified HDHP,
- vendors that offer HDHPs, and
- industry professionals that provide related consulting or insurance services.
