Employers Contribute to HSA
Job-based insurance can give you the option of an HSA either through your grandfathered work plan or a SHOP plan (Small Business Health Options Program).
An employer who doesn’t offer health insurance may still contribute to your HSA. This contribution, more than likely, does not count as earnings -always consult with your tax expert when figuring out new HSA plans.
