If I’m on my wife’s employee-sponsored health insurance plan, can I also sign up for the high deductible plan that my employer provides in order to take advantage of the HSA (+ match)?

You wouldn’t be eligible for high deductible if you have traditional coverage. Your spouse could have single coverage and you could do high deductible separately.

Under the tax laws, you can’t have an HSA if you don’t have only a high deductible plan. I know there is some workaround if one spouse has a regular plan and one has an HSA, but I believe it’s a household thing usually.

I don’t know the right answer. But my wife and I did this for several years until she got a new job. Her insurance was really cheap so we were both on her plan and got the family-level hsa match. I also had individual coverage at my work with an hsa and got that hsa match too.

Do you think it’s a bad time to job search? I’m currently in a role I actually enjoy with pretty good work/life balance and management that seems to like me, but the pay from what I can tell is well below market for talent, and the company is cutting costs so much that I don’t see them fixing the gap or giving us good bonuses or anything anytime soon (F500 level company by revenue for ref). That said, I’d hate to leave for more money only to get worked to death or laid off.
