Yes, absolutely! If you are on a HDHP which covers your spouse and/or family members, then you can contribute a higher amount than if it were just you on the plan. If however, those people can be claimed on another person’s tax return, then you would be unable to contribute the higher amount (for 2017 – $6,750 for families vs. $3,400 for individuals).
