FSA with grace period terms

An FSA offers a grace period to participants of an additional 2 ½ months that can incur claims after the end of a plan year. This 2 ½ month grace period disqualifies those from contributing to an HSA, regardless of when the balance was zeroed.

IRA to HSA rollover

HSA owners may make a one-time distribution of money from an IRA into an HSA. An individual may only do this if they are already eligible to have an HSA. Funds can only be rolled over once during a lifetime. The maximum rollover amount is the same as the annual HSA contribution limit for that year.
