Recently, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced (See Revenue Procedure 2022-24) cost-of-living adjustments to the applicable dollar limits for health savings accounts (HSAs), high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) and excepted benefit health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs) for 2023. All of the dollar limits currently in effect for 2022 will change for 2023, with the exception of one limit. The HSA catch-up contribution for individuals ages 55 and older will not change as it is not subject to cost-of-living adjustments.

The table below compares the applicable dollar limits for HSAs, HDHPs and excepted benefit HRAs for 2022 and 2023.

HEALTH AND WELFARE PLAN LIMITS 2022 Δ 2023
HDHP - Maximum annual out-of-pocket limit (excluding premiums)      
Self-only coverage $7,050 $7,500
Family coverage $14,100 $15,000
HDHP - Minimum annual deductible      
Self-only coverage $1,400 $1,500
Family coverage $2,800 $3,000
HSA - Annual contribution limit      
Self-only coverage $3,650 $3,850
Family coverage $7,300 $7,750
Catch-up contributions (ages 55 and older) $1,000 = $1,000
Excepted Benefit HRA      
Annual contribution limit $1,800 $1,950

NEXT STEPS

Plan sponsors should update payroll and plan administration systems for the 2023 cost-of-living adjustments and incorporate the new limits in relevant participant communications, such as open enrollment and communication materials, plan documents and summary plan descriptions.

New York City's Wage Transparency Law to Take Effect November 1, 2022

By Christina S. Dumitrescu McDermott Will & Emery May 06 , 2022

On January 15, 2022, the New York City Council enacted Local Law 32 of 2022 (Wage Transparency Law or Law) to amend the New York City Human Rights Law (NYCHRL) to require that most employers include compensation data in their job advertisements. The Law was supposed to take effect on May 15, 2022, however, it faced criticism over a number of ambiguities, including undefined penalties. In response, on April 28, 2022, the New York City Council passed an amendment to the Wage Transparency Law. Among the biggest changes is that employers now have until November 1, 2022—more than six months—to ensure compliance with the Law’s requirements. If Mayor Eric Adams signs the Law, which he is expected to do, New York City will become the second jurisdiction in the country (the first being Colorado) to require employers to include minimum and maximum potential salary amounts for open positions in job postings.

NAIC Continues to Refine Multiyear Work Plan to Expand Scrutiny of Holding Company Act Filings

By Andrea T. Best McDermott Will & Emery May 05 , 2022

In our report published on April 26, 2022, we discussed the New York Department of Financial Services’ (NYDFS) Circular Letter No. 5 in which it reminded the industry that acquiring less than 10% of an insurer’s voting securities does not necessarily mean that the acquirer (1) is not a “controller” and (2) does not have to submit a Form A application to the insurer’s home state or domestic regulator seeking approval for the change of control. This topic is one of several related matters that various committees, task forces and working groups of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) are studying and will continue to study over a multiyear period (the Project).

U.S. Supreme Court Rejects Prejudice Requirement for Waiver of Arbitration

By Mark J. Levin Ballard Spahr May 23 , 2022

The U.S. Supreme Court today held that waiver of the right to arbitrate does not require a showing that the other party was prejudiced. The unanimous opinion by Justice Kagan in Morgan v. Sundance reversed the Eighth Circuit, which had held that a party waives the right to arbitrate if it knew of the right, acted inconsistently with that right and prejudiced the other party by its inconsistent actions.
