NRA urges support for legislation to cut health care costs

The National Restaurant Association is asking the U.S. House of Representatives to support legislation aimed at reducing health care costs and providing more flexibility for employers and employees.

In a letter directed to all House members in advance of an expected June 7 vote, the NRA called on Congress to support provisions of H.R. 436, the "Health Care Cost Reduction Act of 2012," that would repeal parts of the 2010 health care law that restricted consumers from using their Flexible Spending Accounts, Health Savings Accounts, and Health Reimbursement Accounts to purchase over-the-counter medications.

The same bill also would allow employees to cash out up to $500 of unused funds set aside for medical expenses in FSAs.

"We look forward to continuing to work with Congress in creating an affordable and reasonable health care system by addressing other health and tax related provisions driving up the cost of health care coverage," according to the NRA letter.
