H.R. 365- Primary Care Enhancement Act of 2017

This is the bill we’ve all been waiting for!  If it passes, consumers will be allowed to use HSA dollars to pay for direct primary care arrangements!  This is exciting for both individuals, and employers! Tom Price is a proponent, and this bill has lots of bi-partisan support.
