one family, two HSA accounts

I have an HSA account for myself, my husband has an HSA account for him and our son.  Under the HSA section, I listed my HSA account as "self" and his as "family" since his covers our child.  During final checking, turbotax is stating "both are treated as having only the family coverage plan. Plans with self-only coverage are disregarded."  How can this be?  Please explain...

    Because the family limit is 6150 regardless.
    • I understand, but we did not reach the family limit of 6150
    • I have the same type of issue
      I have a family HSA and my wife has a "self" HSA - we work for the same company and they require us keep them seperate.

      When I enter them both - 1 family for me and family, 1 self for wife - it takes it - but will not let me go past the final review

    to follow up...you need to take it literally when it says that all but a family HDHP will be discounted. Enter no for the (tax payers) individual plan when it asks about HDHP plan and it will take you to a monthly summary. Enter family plan for all monthly choices and the "error" will go away. (edit) this works if you don't exceed the max contribution.

      I think TurboTax's issue is that the if one of you has a "family" HDHP the other's HDHP doesn't raise the limit.  I would try removing the other HDHP (NOT the other HSA!) and see if it calms down.

        People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

        1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
        2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
        3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
        4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
        5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
