A new report from J.P. Morgan provides more evidence of health savings accounts’ growing popularity. The report is based on the account activity of over 500,000 account holders in 2009.

Forty-five percent of account holders had over $1,000 in cash in their HSA at the end of 2009, up 10 percentage points from the 2008.
