* Many HSA providers require accountholders to keep a minimum balance in their cash account before they can invest additional funds. However, keeping funds in a low-interest cash account means accountholders miss out on those funds’ potential investment returns; this is known as opportunity cost.

These calculations assume a 6% market return and use the applicable cash account interest rate for each HSA provider.
