Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are an important tool to help patients regain control over their medical spending by letting them keep some of the money they would otherwise send directly to the government or insurance company. In this podcast with Michael Ostrolenk, Ryan Ellis of Americans for Tax Reform gives an overview of how HSAs work to benefit taxpayers. He also explains some of the recent negative changes made to HSAs by ObamaCare and what is being done to strengthen them, including Senator Orrin Hatch’s proposed Family and Retirement Health Investment Act of 2011 – S 1098.
AAPS was founded in 1943 and has been fighting for private medicine in the United States ever since. From defeating the initial attempt in the 1940s to socialize American medicine, to successfully opening up the secret Clinton Health Care Taskforce, and now as the only professional physician organization to challenge ObamaCare, AAPS has consistently stood up for free market and ethical principles in the practice of medicine. AAPS Executive Director Jane Orient, M.D. in this interview with Michael Ostrolenk, gives a historical perspective on these and other AAPS accomplishments.
