CFPB Highlights the Hidden Costs of Health Savings Accounts

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) released a report detailing the complex costs and fees that many consumers with health savings accounts are forced to pay.

There were approximately 36 million health savings accounts in 2023, holding more than $116 billion. These accounts provide tax benefits to help offset the costs of high deductible health plans.

However, these benefits are being offset by charges like monthly maintenance fees, paper statement fees, outbound transfer fees, and account closure fees.

This report is part of the CFPB’s continuing efforts to reduce the risks and costs brought by financial institutions as they increase their presence in the American healthcare system.
