Health Savings Accounts Hold Over $61 Billion For Future Medical Expenses

MINNEAPOLIS — Devenir, a national leader in providing investment solutions for health savings accounts (HSAs), released today the results of its 18th semi-annual health savings account survey and resulting research report.  Devenir found that the number of HSAs has grown to now exceed 26 million, holding an estimated $61.7 billion in assets halfway through 2019.

The survey data was collected in July of 2019 and primarily consisted of top 100 HSA providers in the health savings account market, with all data being collected for the period ending on June 30th, 2019.

Key findings from the Devenir 2019 Midyear HSA Survey and resulting research report:

  • HSA assets surpass $60 billion.  There are now over 26 million health savings accounts, holding $61.7 billion in assets, a year-over-year increase of 12% for accounts and 20% for HSA assets for the period ending June 30th, 2019.
  • HSA investment asset growth rebounds.  Strong market tailwinds propelled HSA investment assets to an estimated $13.3 billion at the end of June, up 35% year-over-year. On average, investment account holders hold a $15,982 total balance (deposit and investment account).
  • Over one million HSAs investing.  There are now over one million accounts that are investing a portion of their HSA dollars, representing a little over 4% of all accounts.
  • HSA contributions continue to rise. Account holders contributed over $22 billion to their accounts in the first six months of 2019, up 12% from the year prior.

“Health savings account holders are increasingly aware of their healthcare costs in retirement.  To help meet those future healthcare expenses, over one million accounts are now investing their HSA dollars,” said Jon Robb, SVP of research and technology at Devenir.

Devenir projects that, by the end of 2021, the HSA market will approach $88 billion in HSA assets held by over 30 million accounts.
