Switch my UMB HSA account from "cash" category to "investments"

Currently my UMB HSA account is shown under the "cash" account type and I would like the option to re-categorize it to "investments" or really anywhere besides "cash".  Is this possible?

My cash accounts (checking/savings) fluctuate on a day to day basis and I would like to see my cash account be a  total of my checking/savings accounts.  This reflects my true buying power / liquid cash / whatever you want to call it.  Although my HSA would be in the same category as my checking / savings accounts ("liquid cash" etc.), because of the obvious restrictions on this account and my limited use of it, I do not want the HSA to be included in the cash account total.

With the current account options, I would put the HSA with "investments" accounts even though that maybe doesn't quite properly reflect exactly what it is.  It wouldn't really matter to me what account type it ends up in so long as: it is not grouped with cash accounts, gets updated along with everything else, contributes to my net worth.

In essence, I cannot buy groceries, pay rent, put gas in my car with my HSA and don't want it grouped in with those accounts.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
