About this table

This table represents the Total Contributions and Earned Interest, but excludes the Estimated Pre-Tax Savings figure as it is not an actual dollar contribution to your HSA account.

About Your Annual Contribution

Each year the Federal government determines the total maximum dollar amount both you and PNC may contribute, combined (this includes Wellness Credits). For 2017, this maximum is $3,400 if you cover yourself only, and $6,750 for all other coverage levels.

If you are aged 55 years or older, you may also make an additional “catch-up” contribution of up to $1,000, regardless of coverage level.

Please enter how much you expect to earn in Wellness Credits

Wellness Credits are deposited in your HSA as cash when you participate in certain Living Well activities. Generally, you and your covered spouse/domestic partner can earn $300 for completing a health assessment + biometric screening. You then can earn an additional $300 (in $50 increments) for completing certain other activities; your covered spouse/domestic partner can earn up to an additional $100.

Wellness Credits are deposited in your account by PNC and count toward your IRS maximum contribution.

Please refer to PNC Benefits for details.

What is an HSA?

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is like a personal savings accounts, but the money saved there is used to pay for you and your family’s qualified health care expenses.

Why consider an HSA?

  • You own and control the money in your health savings account.

  • You do not pay taxes on money going into your HSA or any associated investment growth.

  • Money contributed into the account is with pre-tax dollars, which reduces your taxes per your tax rate.

  • Any unused money at the end of the year rolls over (stays in your account) year over year.

  • It is portable as you move between employers.

Who can participate?

You must be under the age of 65 and participate in a High-Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). If your spouse uses your insurance as secondary coverage, s/he must also be enrolled in a HDHP. The HDHP must be your only health insurance; however, having dental, vision, disability and long term care insurance does not disqualify you from having an HSA.

How much may I contribute?

Each year the federal government determines the maximum dollar amount both you and your employer may contribute. If you are aged 55 years or older, you may also make “catch-up” contributions in addition to the maximum contribution guidelines.

About this table

This table represents the Total Contributions and Earned Interest, but excludes the Estimated Pre-Tax Savings figure as it is not an actual dollar contribution to your HSA account.

About Your Out-of-Pocket Expenses

Use the high-level chart below to help you estimate your annual out-of-pocket medical and prescription drug expenses. For example, do you typically meet your deductible? If so, use that number as a guideline, then add coinsurance costs on top of that if you expect to need additional care. The out-of-pocket maximum is the most you would pay for covered services from in-network providers next year.

You should also think about any eligible dental and vision expenses you may want to pay with your HSA next year.

When you have a rough idea of your estimated expenses, simply close this popup and type your estimated expenses into the main page of the calculator.
