"Contributing to an HSA absolutely *requires* that you have a qualified, HSA-eligible high deductible health insurance plan. No health insurance, no HSA contributions"
A personal HSA to which one may contribute pretax dollars (the objective of the OP) is, by definition, made of two components: a custodial HSA and a HDHP. This is by definition.
If one is already covered by a health plan from their employer or their spouses employer, as I'm sure the OP is, then they are not eligible to contribute to a personal HSA.
