EHI Signs Letter to Congress on Virtual Care Access

January 14, 2022

EHI joined more than 100 organizations this week in urging Congress to reinstate virtual care access for those with high-deductible health plans with health savings accounts (HDHP-HSAs).

As part of the CARES Act, Congress allowed employers and health plans to provide pre-deductible coverage for telehealth services for employees with HDPH-HSAs (32 million Americans). This flexibility expired on December 31, 2021, and organizations are urging Congress to take action to reinstate, especially given the recent surge in COVID cases.
