Yesterday, H.R. 6311 -- the Increasing Access to Lower Premiums Plans and Expanding Health Savings Account Act of 2018 -- passed the House of Representatives. H.R. 6311 expands access to tax-preferred health accounts, allowing people to plan and save for their health care based on their individual needs.
In addition, the bill expands who is eligible to contribute to HSA's, as well as expanding options for all Americans to choose lower cost health plans. This bill also reverses harmful Obamacare taxes that are passed onto consumers and small businesses which will ensure lower premiums and to increase jobs growth and innovation.
"This bill increases choice, lowers premiums and lets more families save to pay for health care costs," said Roskam during his speech. "It's time to drive a discussion around empowering individuals and their families to make health care decisions for themselves based on their needs and based on their budgets. Individuals and families are the best ones to make these decisions -- not politicians, not bureaucrats in Washington."
