Statement from Tom Gallagher in Support of Health Savings Accounts

5/13/2004

CONTACT: Tami Torres
(850) 413-2842

"I applaud the Governor's push today to make Florida a leader in offering small employers and their employees access to tax-advantaged health savings accounts (HSAs) and health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs). These accounts will help Floridians pay for out-of-pocket health costs with pre-tax dollars and empower them to make wise financial decisions about their medical care.

In addition to offering another option for Floridians seeking health care coverage, these accounts will be attractive to young, healthy individuals who so often choose to go without insurance and will help lower overall costs in the market."
