I am United States Citizen.
I lived in Mexico all of 2015, I had a high deductible health plan (HDHP) from a Mexican insurance company all of 2015 as well.
My plan meets United States IRS HDHP requirements to make a 2015 HSA contribution, IF I lived in the United States or at least had a United States insurance provider.
I desire to make a 2015 HSA contribution to an American HSA bank account. Though I have no tax liability, other than self employment taxes, that would benefit from the HSA deduction, I still wish to contribute to my HSA account as it is a tax shelter and I can trade stocks and options (treating my HSA like an IRA).
I cannot find anywhere on the IRS website whether I can make an HSA contribution when my high deductible health plan is with a foreign insurance company.This Mexican insurance company will not provide proof of my HDHP insurance, either 1099-HC, my #SS or otherwise, to the IRS, as is required by United States insurance companies.
