HSA Growth Accelerating Among Employers and Consumers
Affordable HSA Accounts
Nearly 3.2 million enrolled in HSA/HDHPs
Health savings accounts (HSAs) have become an important option for some consumers and small businesses who have struggled to afford health insurance coverage, a new census of health insurance plans released today finds.
The census, conducted by America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), revealed that lower-premium, high-deductible health insurance plans (HDHP) offered in conjunction with HSAs covered 3,168,000 people in January 2006, more than triple the 1,031,000 AHIP reported in March 2005.
"We continue to see significant growth in both the individual and employer markets," said AHIP President and CEO Karen Ignagni.
