Rep. Chip Roy’s Healthcare Freedom Act Would Give Patients a Personal Option in Health Care

Oct 18, 2022 by AFP

Arlington, Va. – Today, Americans for Prosperity announced its support for the Health Care Freedom Act, legislation sponsored by Rep. Chip Roy (TX).

Among its key provisions, the bill would significantly expand access to tax-free Health Savings Accounts. Currently, only about 10% of Americans are eligible to have a HSA, a fact that contributes to why health care costs have become much higher and more opaque.

“Tax-free Health Savings Accounts save people money and give them more control over their health care by putting them in charge of their health care dollars,” said Dean Clancy, senior health policy fellow at Americans for Prosperity. “The fact that 90% of Americans can’t have a HSA is a major injustice that must be addressed if we truly want to reduce health care costs and make the health system more responsive to patients. Expanding access to HSAs is key to creating more personalized options in health care, and we applaud Rep. Roy for including this solution in his Healthcare Freedom Act.”
