Even with a new administration Direct Primary Care still has a pulse in Congress. This just in:
U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) on Jan. 28 introduced the Primary Care Enhancement Act, S. 128, with cosponsor U.S. Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ), to clarify the tax code to say that a DPC agreement does not make a patient ineligible to contribute to an HSA, and that pre-tax HSA funds may be used to pay DPC fees.
“For more and more Arizonans, direct primary care is their preferred option of getting quality health care, and this common sense fix would allow many of them to use their existing benefits to make that care more affordable,” said Sen. Kelly. “Especially during this pandemic, it’s critical to continue working on solutions to lower the cost of healthcare.”
Common sense fix? Yup. Chances that Congress has common sense? Little. Chances this law gets passed? You decide.
