Are Equality Healthcare’s monthly fees eligible for HSA or FSA reimbursement?
Unfortunately, the monthly fee for DPC memberships is still not HSA eligible. However, progress is being made on the federal level with legislation being passed in July 2018 in the House of Representatives. The House passed HR 6199 Restoring Access to Medication and Modernizing Health Savings Accounts Act of 2018, which included language from the Primary Care Enhancement Act by a vote of 277-142. The language contains a $150 per member per month ($300 for family plans) HSA contribution limit to pay for DPC memberships. This potentially clears the way for millions of Americans with HSAs to have great access to affordable primary care from a DPC doctor of their choice. While not perfect, this will allow almost all DPC practices to see patients with HSAs and allow their fees to be paid from the HSA if this legislation is taken up and passed by the Senate. Feel free to contact our office for updates on this legislation. We also recommend discussing this topic with your personal tax professional.
