Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

To be eligible to contribute to an HSA, an individual must be enrolled in a qualified HDHP and may not have any other “disqualifying coverage.”

Medicare is a "disqualifying coverage."

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
