Bill introduced to allow health savings account use for home care expenses

A bill introduced in the House of Representatives Sept. 13 would make it possible for patients to use a health savings account (HSA) for home care services.

The bill, H.R. 6813 or the Homecare for Seniors Act, is sponsored by Rep. Sam Johnson, (R-TX) and Rep. John Larson (D-CT). It would amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to allow people to set aside pre-tax money in a HSA to pay for qualified home care services, such as assistance with eating, toileting, transferring, bathing, dressing, continence or medication adherence.

The bill was referred to the House Committee on Ways and Means, which Rep. Johnson and Rep. Larson are both members of. The Home Care Association of America is in support of the legislation and has urged members of Congress to co-sponsor the bill.
