The Office of Personnel Management is looking for
opportunities to include Health Savings Accounts in the
Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, covering 3.1
million people (HSAs are designed to help save money on
qualified medical and retiree health expenses on a tax-free
basis), said OPM.
“OPM will try to identify ways to help those in the Federal
Team save some of their hard earned money by looking for
ways to provide access to HSAs in an effort to further the
number of options available to them under the FEHB program,”
said OPM Director Kay Coles James, who added that money put
into these accounts is not taxable and that individuals can
put away up to $2,600 and families can put away up to
$5,150, and that the HSAs are portable from job to job.
