* Have no other medical coverage through your own or spouse's employer-sponsored health care plan that is not a qualified HDHP

2012 HSA Contribution Limits Rise Slightly From 2011.
Increases in the contribution limits are based on inflation and due to the fact that overall inflation measured by the CPI was subdued there was a small inflation adjustment. Therefore, the 2012 HSA contribution limits rose by $50 for individuals and $100 for families over 2011.

Using your HSA
You can use the money in the account to pay for any "qualified medical expense" permitted under federal tax law. This includes most medical care and services like dental, vision care and even over-the-counter drugs, such as aspirin.
You can use the money in the account for yourself, your spouse or your dependent children. You also can pay for the expenses incurred by your spouse and dependent children, even if they are not covered by your HDHP.

 

HSA Restrictions
HSA funds used for nonqualified medical expenses will be assessed a 10 percent tax penalty and also will be taxed as regular income.
Funds withdrawn after age 65 (or if you become disabled) are exempt from the 10 percent tax penalty. However, the funds still will be subject to income taxes if the funds are used for nonqualified medical expenses.
