  • Yes, HSA funds can be used to pay for eligible medical expenses for a spouse or dependent even if they are not covered under employer's qualifying High Deductible plan.

    Example scenario:
    A wife has an HSA through her employer and contributes to an HSA.

    Her husband and kids are covered under the husband's PPO plan through his employer. The wife is allowed to pay for eligible medical expenses for the husband and children even though they are not covered under her insurance.
