It is my understanding per the most recent HSA guidance, employers who are offering HSA + HDHP to active employees do not have to offer an HSA account to COBRA participants.

However, I read that if an employer is offering an HSA and is contributing to an enrolled employees' HSA account, the employer has to also fund COBRA participants account. Employer is also allowing employees to contribute to their HSA via pre-tax payroll deductions.

Does anyone out there have any info on this subject?

Thank you.
