Reminders and Tips

Below we’ve provided a few housekeeping tips to ensure your account is up to date, and compliant with IRS regulations. Please review the below, and let us know if you have any questions or need help.

Review Your Annual Limits

For the calendar year 2016, the IRS guidelines allow you to contribute $3,350 if you are covered by an individual health plan and $6,750 if you have family coverage. You may contribute up to this maximum amount at any time during the year. Our fees are deducted monthly from your account balance and are not considered contributions toward the IRS allowed contribution limits. Remember that a minimum $20 balance must be kept in the account at all times.

Check Your Contribution Levels

If your employer is making contributions on your behalf, please note that the IRS contribution maximums are the combination of any contribution your employer makes and any contribution that you make.

If Applicable, Please Update Tier Changes

Please update your HSA information if you have moved from Single Medical Coverage to Family Medical Coverage, or Family Medical Coverage to Single Medical Coverage during your open enrollment.

Manage Your Account Online

The easiest way to manage your HSA account is online, with 24/7 access to make contributions, process claims and more, from your smartphone or tablet. If you haven’t already registered online, it’s quick and easy. If you have more than one type of account with Sterling, such as an FSA or HRA through your employer, you’ll only need to register once to have online access to all of your accounts.
