Issues with Health insurance coverage - HSA section . Not enough options for selection self, self with kids, family ? Need help

Looks like Turbo tax is missing some options in the Health Insurance Section.   Employers offer enrollment at different levels -  Family,  Self,  self with kids.  I have a deluxe version which only allows for either Family or self.   My wife is having her insurance with kids,  I am having insurance myself.   Under mine I didn't choose HSA,  but my wife is having HSA.  While entering the information in Deluxe version the software thinks my insurance is lapsed.  Looks like yoursoftware is missing this.  Need help .  contact me for more details


The section of TurboTax is correct with regard to High Deductible Health Plans (HDHP) and Health Savings Account (HSA) options.  HDHP plans with HSAs are only Family or Self.  It does not matter which version of TurboTax you are using.  They are all the same with regard to the tax reporting of HSAs and HDHP coverage. 

If your plan does not include the HSA option, then you should choose None for your own coverage in the HSA section. 

To go back to the section of your return to answer the questions again, use the following steps:

  • On the top row of the TurboTax online screen, click on Search (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax locate the search box in the upper right corner)
  • This opens a box where you can type in “hsa” (be sure to enter exactly as shown here) and click the magnifying glass (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax, click Find)
  • The search results will give you an option to “Jump to hsa
  • Click on the blue “Jump to hsa” link and edit your information

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.
