BTW: if *YOU* are covered by an HMO plan, *YOU* will not be eligible to contribute to an HSA account. however, your DH who is only covered by the HDHP probably will be able to open and contribute to an HSA.
(So don't open the HSA account portion through your work and contribute to it from your paycheck if you're getting coverage from somewhere else)


Kaiser also has an HSA compatible plan, which is the reason for my original question.

Is that based on actual discussion with Kaiser and the HDHP provider?

The Blue Cross coverage through work will not coordinate benefits. Any service provided through Kaiser will not be covered. If I planned on using Blue Cross insurance, I would need to drop the Kaiser insurance.

If medical billing isn't enough of a headache, health insurance coverage has become far more complicated.
