Â• Covers how HSAs and HDHPs work, the pros and cons of them, how to install them, strategies for getting the most out of them, and how paychecks and taxes are affected Â• U.S. health care costs were nearly $1.7 trillion in 2003. Â• According to a national survey, 81% of large and 78% of small companies are considering implementing HSAs by 2006
