The IRS Is Coming....To Help You?
I promise. The title is NOT satire.
For many years, hardworking physician-leaders in the Direct Primary Care field have been working with the Federal Government to allow your HSA dollars to be used to pay for direct primary care services such as Code 1 Concierge Care. Thanks to their efforts and an open mind on the part of the current administration, it looks like "The times, they are a-changin'."
The lede paragraph in this article says it all,
"The Internal Revenue Service hopes to give workers a new way to pay for health care: letting them use ordinary health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs) to pay for direct primary care program memberships.
The IRS proposal could help a worker lock in everyday health care costs for a year, while owning low-deductible major medical insurance, or major medical insurance with a very high deductible."
Let's see where this goes.
