An HSA can only be contributed to if one is not currently covered by health insurance.

No. Not even close.

To contribute to an HSA, you MUST have a health insurance policy that qualifies you to make the HSA contributions. They call it a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP), but there's a lot more to it than just a high deductible.
