What happens if an HSA account becomes overdrawn due to a forced debit card transaction?
That likely would be a “prohibited transaction” (just like pulling money out to spend on something non-healthcare related), which could cause the account to lose its HSA status. While it isn’t the bank’s responsibility to make sure the account isn’t overdrawn, it is best practice to prevent overdrafts from happening in an HSA account.
