HSR-002: Medical Savings Accounts

Medical Savings Accounts: The Wisconsin Medical Society continues to support tax-advantaged health care spending accounts in support for a pluralistic system of health care financing designed to preserve consumer choice. The Society continues to support tax-advantaged status for proposals designed to promote segregated savings accounts to be used for health care costs. The Society believes that medical savings accounts should be without expiration and allowed to accrue annually. However, they are a supplement to the broader insurance marketplace and should not be intended to serve as a replacement for comprehensive insurance. (HOD, 0418)
