Is it a hassle to get reimbursed for your health expenses?
---------
Depends on who you choose to hold the HSA funds. The last time I had an HSA, they gave me a debit card that I used to pay for qualifying health expenses. I could also log on to their web site and request a transfer to my main checking account to reimburse myself. Very easy.

============================
Yes, similar to how my flex plan (125 plan or cafeteria plan) used to be handled when I was working. The *reimbursement* itself was immediate, using the debit card. What varied was how much documentation the 3rd party administrator would require after the fact. It seemed kind of random at first. But when I got glasses, for example, they always checked that, because I usually went to Sears Optical, and they wanted to check money spent at Sears. That's actually pretty logical.
