    Can you use HSA funds to pay for Cobra?
    Publication 969 says:
    You can’t treat insurance premiums as qualified medical expenses unless the premiums are for:
    2. Health care continuation coverage (such as coverage under COBRA).
    But my HSA administrator does not list Cobra as one of the reasons for withdrawing funds.
    Can I simply contribute funds on one day and withdraw them the next day for all of the Cobra payments that I have made during the year?
