Legislation authorizing supplement purchases via HSAs, FSAs incentivize healthy behaviors

CRN “enthusiastically supports” legislation recently introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives to allow supplement purchases with pre-tax dollars, said CRN President & CEO Steve Mister.

Why it matters: H.R. 5214, introduced by Reps. John Curtis (R-UT) and Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), recognizes dietary supplements as qualified medical expenses, allows supplement purchases via Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), and provides economic incentives for consumers to practice preventive healthcare.

A win-win situation: “We believe in incentivizing healthy behaviors and empowering consumer choice,” said Mister, noting that supplements are a cost-effective way to support health and wellness.

Big picture: Advancing efforts to include dietary supplements in FSAs and HSAs is one of CRN’s top priorities for 2021.
