If an individual has Veteran benefits, can they have an HSA?

If an individual has received any Veterans Administration (VA) health benefits‡ in the last 90 days from the VA or one of their facilities, including prescription drugs, they are not eligible to open or contribute to an HSA until the first of the month following the 90-day waiting period. If they have only received dental, vision or preventive care services from a VA facility or clinic within the past three months, they will remain eligible to open and contribute to an HSA.
