The Business Group and a broad coalition of over 350 stakeholder organizations – representing employers, patient advocates, health care companies, and consumer groups – sent a letter to Congressional leaders urging Congress to extend the expanded pre-deductible telehealth coverage flexibility for health savings account-eligible (HSA) plans first implemented by the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Although these flexibilities were subsequently extended in the FY 2022 Omnibus appropriations legislaiton, they are set to expire on December 31, 2022. The Business Group and other signatories emphasized the need for this extension prior to 2023 so that employers would not need to charge employees more to access this care, thus removing an undesirable barrier for employees and their families to access needed treatment.
