To contribute to an HSA plan, you must have been covered by a High Deductible plan -- that's why the program is seeing an error.

Please see TurboTaxDanielV's advice below.  He's correct -- you may actually be under an HDHP, otherwise you generally wouldn't have been allowed to contribute to the HSA.
