Al Hubbard on Health Savings Accounts

By July 28, 2006Health Care

As we mentioned yesterday, former NAM member and top economic adviser to the President Al Hubbard opened yesterday with a speech on health care. He touted the benefits of health savings accounts (HSA’s), noting that the number of enrollees in HSA’s has tripled, to almost 3 million today. He emphasized the importance of engaging — and incentivizing — the consumer on health care. He urged all manufacturers to provide employees information on the cost and quality of health care they’re receiving, so they can make more informed choices.
