The Use of Health Savings Accounts for Health Care in Retirement

Source: Employee Benefit Research Institute, Vol. 31, No. 4, April 2010

From the press release:
Health savings accounts (HSAs) are likely to play a minor part in savings for health care costs in retirement, according to a report issued today by the nonpartisan Employee Benefit Research Institute.

That’s because both statutory contribution limits and currently low interest rates constrain the amount HSAs are able to generate, compared with the large amount needed to pay for retiree health expenses.
