On this pop-up episode of She Thinks, Carrie Sheffield joins to help us consider IWF’s January policy focus: Becoming American with Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). We discuss what HSAs are, why current unequal access to them limits our freedom, and how allowing universal and robust HSAs can improve your provider and treatment options as well as make sure we have the money we need to access necessary care.
