Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Representative Ted Budd (R-NC) have introduced the S.3546/H.R. 6338, the “Pandemic Healthcare Access Act,” legislation that expands Health Savings Accounts (HSA) to allow Americans to pay for their healthcare tax free for the duration of the Coronavirus pandemic.

ATR has released a scorecard that will be continually updated to reflect support for S.3546/H.R. 6338, which you can view here.

This is a simple, one-page bill that suspends the mandate that HSAs can only be offered with high-deductible health plans (HDHP) for the duration of the COVID-19 emergency declaration.

If implemented, the Pandemic Healthcare Access Act will cut taxes for millions of Americans, as any money contributed to HSAs is tax deductible, can grow tax free, and money spent on qualified healthcare expenses is tax free. The legislation will also expand access to HSAs for Americans on Medicare, Medicaid, those that receive care through the VA, Indian health plans, Obamacare, and any employer plan.

All members of Congress should support this legislation, and President Trump should sign it into law.

Here is a list of members who already support the Pandemic Healthcare Access Act:

  • Senator Ted Cruz (Texas)
  • Congressman Ted Budd (North Carolina - 13th district)
  • Senator Ben Sasse (Nebraska)
  • Congressman Dan Bishop (North Carolina - 9th district)
