HSAs allow for tax-deductible contributions and tax-free distributions if distributed amounts are used to pay for qualified medical expenses. Qualified medical expenses include expenses incurred by spouses and dependents even if they are not eligible for an HSA. Although employers may contribute to an employee’s HSA, each HSA is owned and controlled by the individual, not the employer.

I am not enrolled in Medicare.
I am not eligible to be claimed as a dependent on another person’s tax return.
