I submitted my taxes without the HSA part of because I thought my employer added that in error. How do I fix it?

I did not recognize the HSA account as something I had applied for when it popped up on my taxes and so I thought the employer had made a mistake and skipped over it.  After I submitted my taxes, I got a response from my employer that yes I had an HSA account and they had put $1,500 towards it.  I was advised that I could pay any of my medical bills from 2018.  I went ahead and paid the outstanding bills from 2018 and now I have a balance of about $11.00.  What do I do to fix this with the IRS?  Do I need to file an adjustment?  Please help, thanks

Open your return and enter your HSA amount shown in Box 12 on your W-2.   You could use FORMS mode to do this directly on the W-2 Worksheet

If it makes a difference in your Refund, then you should Amend your Return.

You don't have to spend the total amount in your HSA account each year.
