HSAs are tax-exempt trusts or custodial accounts established exclusively to pay qualified medical expenses. To be eligible for HSAs, individuals must be covered by a high deductible health plan.

The study found that 4.5 million Americans are enrolled in an HSA-eligible high deductible health plan in 2007, up from 3.2 million in 2006.

Eighty-eight percent of HSAs in place in 2006 had average annual balances of $2,500 or less, while 4 percent had average annual balances over $5,000.  As of January 2007, 65 percent of accounts had been in place for less than one year.
