This revenue procedure provides the 2011 inflation adjusted amounts for Health
Savings Accounts (HSAs) as determined under § 223 of the Internal Revenue Code.

application of the cost-of-living adjustment rules of § 223(g) (including the rounding rule of § 223(g)(2)), the changes in the Consumer Price Index for the relevant period do not result in changes to the amounts for 2011.

deductions under § 223(b)(2)(B) for an individual with family coverage under a high
deductible health plan is $6,150.
