The IRS (Internal Revenue Service) has changed the HSA (Health Savings Account) deductible limit for 2015 from $1,250 to $1,300 for self-only coverage and from $2,500 to $2,600 for family and embedded deductible coverage. We anticipate that many North Carolina health plans will adjust deductible amounts to comply with these new deductible limits in 2015. You can view the new limits on the IRS website by clicking here.
