Expanded Preventive Care for Chronic Conditions Covered Under HDHPs and HSAs

In response to the June 24 Executive Order, the Treasury and the IRS, in consultation with HHS, have determined, via Notice 2019-45, that certain low cost medical services received and items purchased, including prescription drugs, for chronic conditions should be classified as preventive care for those with that chronic condition.

While the notice is effective immediately, we anticipate it to impact plans upon renewal. We will update the blog as we learn more.
