HSA Limits for 2017
The IRS recently released the 2017 contribution, deductible, and out-of-pocket expense limits for health savings accounts (HSAs).

Employers and other individuals may also make contributions to an HSA on behalf of an eligible individual.
* Dental, vision, long-term care, and certain other types of coverage are permitted.
