Homecare for Seniors Act
This bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to allow distributions from health savings accounts (HSAs) to be used for qualified home care.
"Qualified home care" includes a contract to provide three or more of the following services in the residence of the service recipient:
- assistance with eating,
- assistance with toileting,
- assistance with transferring,
- assistance with bathing,
- assistance with dressing,
- assistance with continence, and
- medication adherence.
The Department of Health and Human Services must carry out a campaign to increase public awareness of the in-home service expenses that are eligible for tax-free distribution from HSAs.
