Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement after the House passed the Restoring Access to Medication Act of 2015 (H.R. 1270).

“It’s time to restore HSAs,” said McMorris Rodgers. “If we want to reduce long-term health care costs and ensure the American people have the ability to keep their families healthy, then they need to be able to use tax-free money from their Health Savings Accounts and Flexible Spending Accounts for over-the-counter health services, not just prescription drugs. This legislation allows people to save more and use their dollars to best benefit their health care needs.”
