To be eligible and qualify for an HSA, you must meet the following requirements:

  1. You must have coverage under an HSA-qualified "high deductible health plan" (HDHP).
  2. Have no other first dollar medical health coverage except what is permitted under, (Other Health Coverage: disability, dental care, vision care, or long-term care insurance are permitted).
  3. Are not enrolled in Medicare.
  4. Cannot be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s tax return.

You, your employer, or both can make contributions to your HSA. However, the total contributions are limited annually. If you make a contribution, you can deduct the contributions (even if you do not itemize deductions) when completing your federal income tax return.
