Halfway through 2021, assets in health savings accounts totaled $92.9 billion, a year-over-year increase of 26%, according to a study by Devenir, a Minneapolis-based HSA specialist.
The study found that almost $24 billion was contributed to health savings accounts during the first half of the year and that there are now more than 31 million HSAs, up 6% over the same year-over-year period.
The survey data, collected mostly in July from the top 100 providers in the HSA market, all reflect the period ending June 30, Devenir said in a release.
During the first half, HSA account holders withdrew more $16 billion from their accounts, down 1% from the withdrawals during the same period in 2020.
More investing is occurring in the accounts, according to the study, with almost 2 million accounts, more than 6% of the total, investing some of the money in the account.
Devenir currently expects that by the end of 2023, there will be more than 36 million HSAs holding over $131 billion in assets.
