I signed up for it this year. My share of my insurance Premium doubled so I opted for the High Deductible Low Premium plan. My wife and I are healthy with very few visits to the Doctor. I invested the difference in premiums to the HSA. My employer also threw in a grand.
My plan is to treat it just like the 401k. It works very similarly. Tax free as long as you use it for HC. I believe you can even apply the money to premiums later on. So hopefully I stay healthy and when I retire I have a nice little nest egg to apply for medical coverage in my later years.
