White House exploring HSAs to cover more preventive services
Modern Healthcare

The Trump administration is exploring a proposal that would allow high-deductible plans with health savings accounts to cover preventive services such as providing free insulin, a White House advisor said.

The proposal, outlined by White House healthcare advisor Brian Blase, would redefine what a preventive service is in a health savings account eligible high-deductible plan.

“We should figure out a way that insulin for diabetics is considered a preventive service that people should use their HSA for,” Blase said during an event sponsored by Roll Call in Washington D.C. on Wednesday.
