HSA Bank. You have a savings account with them to clear your transactions. The rest you can set up with a TDAmeritrade account linked to them. They also give you a debit card to use for your transactions. I've been with them for years and no probs..

A little bit off topic, but does anyone know of a way to open an HSA after the fact? I had a lot of unexpected medical expenses this year that I've already paid with after-tax money. Is it too late to set this up?

I'm not 100% certain but my guess is that it is too late, because you can't withdraw penalty-free unless it is for a "qualified" expense. Paying yourself back after the fact so far as I know is not on the list of qualified expenses, that would just be a withdrawal to yourself which will raise all kinds of red flags.

not true, you most def can pay yourself back .... I do it every year... nice xmas bonus...just save your receipts...it's between you and IRS after the fact. I'm just not sure about he lump sum contributions though....as long as you were on a HDHP I bet it's cool though...
