2019 HSA Limit Changes
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Act”), passed by Congress with a January 1, 2019 effective date, changed the calculation for 2018 health savings account (“HSA”) limits. The IRS has issued new guidance, which includes a reduction in allowable HSA contributions for families in the amount of $7000. (The limit for employees with self-only coverage is changed to $3,500.)
|HSA catch-up contributions (age 55 or older)||- $1,000|
Wespath has implemented an enhancement to the single sign on (SSO) from WebMD to Blue Cross Blue Shield today. It now uses a more modern technology, which should bolster security (not that it was lacking before). Because the SSO will point to a new “website” (that looks the same as the old one), participants will need to re-register and accept new terms and conditions. Information needed to register includes: Name, Birthdate, and Identification number (not including “GBH”) and the Group Number from their medical ID card.
For 2019, Indiana Conference continues to offer three health plan options.
If you are happy with your current benefit elections, you do not have to make any changes, it will default to what you currently have. This is the only time you have to make changes to your elections outside the special enrollment periods where you experience a qualifying life event.
- All contributions to FSA, HRA or HSA will not automatically roll-over, you will need to make your elections for the amount of money you would like to contribute to a reimbursement account through your Healthflex WebMD during the election period. (compare accounts here)
- All current HealthFlex participants will receive their open enrollment brochure from Wespath Benefits and Investments during the month of October.
- HealthFlex offers you more plan choices—and provides supports to guide you through the decision-making process. Take advantage of these resources to select the HealthFlex options that best fit your needs. (resource)
- All participants should log onto their HealthFlex WebMd to view their health benefit elections.
