What is an HDHP?

A High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) is exactly what it sounds like: a health insurance plan that covers an individual or family with a high out-of-pocket deductible. With a higher deductible, the plan will naturally have lower monthly premiums – a key benefit to the Health Savings Account formula.

For 2006, the Internal Revenue Service has set the minimum deductible amount for an HSA-Compatible HDHP at $1,050 for individual plans and $2,100 for family plans.

Ask your health plan representative if your plan qualifies to be an HSA-Compatible HDHP.
