Join NJHSA in signing on to a letter to Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX) supporting legislation to allow seniors and families to use their Health Savings Accounts to cover home care expenses. The bill would include home care services as a qualified medical expense in Health Savings Accounts. Enhancing and expanding Health Savings Accounts to give individuals and their families the ability to save and spend their own money for home care is a way to ease the financial burden on many families while reducing national health care costs. Congressman Johnson intends to introduce the bill in early September.
If you organization would like to sign the letter, please email John Schall, CEO, Caregiver Action Network the name of your organization as you would like it to appear, by Friday, September 1st.
