MINNEAPOLIS, May 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) said today that Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) deposits increased 41 percent year to date, totaling more than a quarter-billion dollars for the first time.

Wells Fargo Health Benefit Services reported that more than 150,000 account holders -- many of whom took advantage of higher 2007 contribution limits before the April 15 deadline -- now hold $264 million in HSA deposits.

"Tax law changes helped consumers understand contribution limits and really drove these large deposit increases," said Jose Becquer, head of Wells Fargo Health Benefit Services. "Now our customers feel like they can use an HSA to meet today's health care needs and prepare for tomorrow."

HSAs, created as part of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003, help individuals manage their health care spending and save pretax dollars for future medical expenses.
