ECFC's Busy Week on Capitol Hill

Hill Day Visits

ECFC Members were busy on Capitol Hill this week. Ten members of the ECFC Government Relations and Interpretations Committee were in Washington DC on Wednesday, June 6, and met with the legislative staffers of 24 House and Senate congressional members.

ECFC members stressed to lawmakers the important role that consumer-directed health plans are serving to help employees meet ever increasing health plan deductibles and out-of-pocket medical expenses.  

They also shared data showing that consumer-directed plans like FSAs and HSAs are middle-class benefits. According to a survey conducted by ECFC, the median household income for an FSA participant is $57,060 and $57,860 for an HSA participant.

While on the Hill, ECFC representative made policy recommendations and pointed out specific legislation that it supports.
