Healthcare Help

| August 20, 2011 | 2 Comments

There’s not a lot of good news coming out of Washington these days, so when I learned of this just-introduced Family & Retirement Health Investment bill, I just had to share my discovery.

Essentially, the bill, making its way through the Senate and House of Representatives, would allow a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flex Spending Account (FSA) to pay for dietary supplements. This is how it should be, since these types of accounts allow you to choose how and what type of medical option you want. Moreover, it pushes the issue of managing one’s own health and wellness with preventive efforts.

With healthcare plans paying high costs for treating a problem or disease, this bill is more cost-effective and offers consumers, as well as Medicare for seniors, savings in the long run. As an advocate of supplements and prevention, I believe coronary¬† disease and heart attacks would be reduced if insurers didn’t have restrictions on these accounts.

Let’s hope this bill passes.¬† In the meantime, there are links to heart-related issues and dietary supplements here in this newsletter, and you can always stop by our office to learn about what we carry and recommend.

    After a minor stroke last May I was having trouble with balance, keeping eyes closed in the shower and occasionally feeling a little shaky. Over the last few months I’ve managed to change my life completely thanks to the care of Dr. Kebby. I’m balanced, my posture has improved and the exercises have become a routine I’ll continue for the rest of my life. Thank you Dr. Kebby!
