HDHP isn't worth it for expenses above $700/year. HDHP starts at $1500, whereas non-HDHP you only pay $700/year. Which, given my level of seeing the doctor for various reasons (see below) might be worth it. https://lb31.resources.hewitt.com/ybr5dgp1cl5/ybr5dgp1cl5r2a/CsSmryPlnDsc010DtlOpen.do?fTkn=1a5c1e4edcf7c49d351b107a98e1e8dc&fWdw=primary&eWlmYBR5ClntId=04665&wdw=ansCntrLrg&fPg=%2FHmCvChg030DsclOpen&hTkn=538187b6b0451b2890f9747b6abfa94#

Can withdraw for any expenses without penalty, but you do need to pay income tax on it. So like Traditional IRA.
Can use for medical expenses with no taxes still too.
Up to $500 each year transfers to next year. Usable for dental and vision. However doesn't transfer with you if you leave your employer.
Cheapest seems to be with Fidelity. https://thehsareportcard.com/the-top-10-investor-hsas and https://thehsareportcard.com/fidelity-hsa
If you choose to pay bills now with after-tax money, you can let the HSA grow unrestricted and untaxed in the future. It's even better than a Traditional IRA!
The bonus is that you can reimburse yourself later for the money you spent now, although that doesn't matter that much.
Of bills paid using credit card and not HSA so you can reimburse yourself later.
Need to do 2015-2016 still.
