Dear Congressman Paulsen, Congressman Blumenauer, and Congressman Dent,

On behalf of the 1.3 million members of AMAC, the Association of Mature American Citizens, I am writing in support of H.R. 365, the Primary Care Enhancement Act. This important piece of legislation would grant Americans’ more control over how they spend their health care dollars. By expanding the use of Health Savings Accounts (HSA) to cover Direct Primary Care (DPC) services, Americans will be empowered to take advantage of their HSAs in new and innovative ways.

With more than 20 million Americans currently using HSAs, and millions of Americans expected to use HSAs in the immediate future, the Primary Care Enhancement Act is a timely, future-oriented solution to scale back needless regulations. Under current law, several commonsense uses of HSAs are restricted, resulting in unacceptable burdens to patients who should be free to use their HSA dollars as they see fit. This bill remedies one of those arbitrary and unnecessary burdens by clarifying that direct primary care is a health care service, and not a form of insurance—allowing HSA funds to be used toward direct primary care services. This fix will dramatically increase patients’ access to direct primary care and will help ensure that Americans use their medical dollars to purchase affordable, quality healthcare that meets their needs.

As an organization committed to representing mature Americans and seniors, AMAC is dedicated to ensuring senior citizens’ interests are protected. AMAC applauds Congressmen Paulsen and Blumenauer, and their attentive staffs, for their thoughtful and practical solution to
improve healthcare. AMAC is pleased to offer our organization’s full support to the Primary Care Enhancement Act.

Sincerely,

Dan Weber
President and Founder of AMAC
