- When is an HSA expense “incurred”? 2 answers
I started a HDHP medical plan and HSA account on 1/1/2019. We then had our first child on 1/8/2019. The OB/GYN office took a prepayment for the delivery services before 1/1/2019. So the question is: can I claim the part of the bill that I prepaid as an HSA distribution since the service date was after the creation of the HSA even though the payment date was before creation of the HSA?
