Have around $1100 in medical bill. Does it make sense to pay from my HSA account or put it on monthly payment plan and pay from my checking account as I would pay any bill?

A lot of medical bills will have interest free repayment plans, so I always do that.

Thanks E1!

Either way you can withdraw from your HSA at any time up to 6 months after the bill. So I would setup the payment plan, up your HSA contribution and withdraw the amount for the payment plan each week. You could also just pay entirely out of your HSA, I don't know why you're interested in a payment plan.

Thanks C1! Will keep this in mind.

You may also be able to deduct from your taxes so could be like a back-door HSA contribution. Check with an accountant

Thanks P1 and C1! Had not thought of this angle.

What’s the interest on the monthly payment plan?

Thanks everyone for the helpful insights!

Philosophical question (not trying to be political, just a genuine question I’ve been grappling with): do you think being pro-choice and pro-vax mandate are logically inconsistent?

Goes the other way for pro life/against vax mandates as well. The fact is, they just feel different to me, but I’m not sure why. Thoughts?
