The cost of healthcare keeps going up. In the last 10 years, the annual premium for employer-sponsored family health insurance leapt 55% to almost $20,000, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. To keep those costs in check many companies are starting to offer high deductible health plans (HDHPs) in conjunction with tax-advantaged Health Savings Accounts (HSAs).
