Question Wednesday

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time to unleash our financial questions.

Today’s question is Nicole-specific: since I set up my HSA to auto-invest my contributions, I don’t have cash funds available to reimburse my recent healthcare expenses. I could pull funds out of the investment, but does that mean I’d have to pay capital gains taxes? Would it be smarter to turn off the auto-invest function, make enough contributions to cover the cash value of my expenses, and then request reimbursement?

(I’m totally going to ask Ask the Money Doctor, btw.)
