There is no tax increase. You will (and this isn't even carved in stone yet) lose further opportunity to decrease your taxable income by 2500 by shuffling that amount into the HSA. Two totally different things.
You CAN keep your health care plan. You probably will not be able to keep your HSA (in the manner you do today). Two different things.
