June 1, 2015
"If your current HSA-qualified family health plan costs more than $17,000, including wellness programs, your firm is likely to incur excise tax liability in 2018 if anyone makes a maximum contribution.... Employer uncertainty may cause over-reaction and harm to HSAs, especially in high cost states.... Employers are likely to eliminate contributions through payroll in order to avoid paying the excise tax....Many HSA-qualified plans will likely serve as a 'safe haven' from the Cadillac tax for many years.... Like the Alternative Minimum Tax, over time, the Cadillac Tax will apply to all plans, including HSA plans."
