This question already has an answer here:
possibly related: How do I correct an HSA distribution when I was refunded by a health provider?, Can I get a rebate after using my HSA? (But I don't really understand the topic and those questions well enough to know.)
I have an HSA (through work) in addition to my job-provided health insurance plan. Some months ago I received a bill from PROVIDER and paid DOLLARS out of my HSA. My payment and a second notice from PROVIDER crossed paths in the mail. Not really being on top of my game, when I received second notice from PROVIDER I paid it with DOLLARS out of my HSA.
Recently I received a refund check in the amount of DOLLARS from PROVIDER. I deposited DOLLARS into my traditional checking account.
So DOLLARS flowed out of my HSA, was refunded to me by PROVIDER, and is now in my bank account.
Can I put DOLLARS back into m HSA somehow? If I can, do I need to file anything to identify the erroneous payout from the HSA with my later "repayment" to the HSA?
If I can't put DOLLARS back into the HSA, how do I pay the proper taxes on that money? It went to my HSA pre-tax....
- The originating event, two paments by me, and refund have all occured within calendar year 2015.
- I still have access to the HSA. Nothing about my insurance or HSA has changed this year or will change whenwe hit calendar year 2016. Except the cost of my premiums, of course. (Ohh... you almost got me there, INSURER.)
