Are employers required to make contributions to the HSAs of independent contractors, even if they are covered by the company's HDHP?
An employer does not have an obligation to make HSA contributions to independent contractors. This holds true regardless of whether or not the employer has a Cafeteria Plan, since by definition these individuals are not employees. It is the employer's responsibility to seek legal counsel to determine which individuals are considered independent contractors.
