Conservatives Support Senator Ted Cruz and Representative Chip Roy Bill: The Personalized Care Act

Democrats and their bureaucratic government-run system have largely destroyed the American health care market. The Personalized Care Act, sponsored by Sen. Ted Cruz and

Rep. Chip Roy, puts patients and doctors back at the center of healthcare—not Washington bureaucrats. This bill makes it easier to pay for health insurance and increases portability and accessibility for millions of Americans.


In a time when Democrats are pushing to increase federal control of our healthcare system the conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project endorse The Personalized Care Act as a Republican alternative that stays true to conservative principles and finally creates personalized healthcare for all Americans.

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative and Senators (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to demand they cosponsor The Personalized Care Act and vote “AYE” in Committee and on the Floor.

The American health care market has largely been destroyed. Currently it is unnecessarily complex and long overdue for an overhaul. Prices are too high, choices are too few, and the federal government's response has long been more government control and more money – only leading to worse care and coverage options.

The choice is between a government-run system that is heading us towards bankruptcy or a free-market solution that allows everyone to have access to great care.

In an age of technology, job mobility, and unprecedented market innovation, America deserves a 21st-century solution to this long-broken system. That is why we are supportive of the efforts of Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, and Representative Chip Roy, R-TX with The Personalized Care Act, which aims to help Americans get the health care they need by decreasing bureaucracy and increasing their choices. We encourage all Members to sponsor this legislation and to include The Personalized Care Act in any agenda looking to the 118th Congress.

The Personalized Care Act puts patients and doctors back at the center of healthcare—not Washington bureaucrats. This bill makes it easier to pay for health insurance and increases portability and accessibility for millions of Americans.

The bill decouples HSAs from high-deductible health insurance plans, expands HSAs for individuals with Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, direct medical care, healthcare sharing ministries, short-term limited-duration plans, and medical indemnity plans.

The bill increases HSA contribution limits from $3,550 (2020 limit) to $10,800 for individuals and from $7,100 (2020 limit) to $29,500 for families.

The bill extends allowable HSA withdrawals to include direct medical care fees, healthcare sharing ministry fees, and insurance premiums.

Defines direct medical care and healthcare sharing ministries as qualified medical expenses and not health plans or insurance plans.

Reduces the penalty for nonqualified distributions from 20 percent to 10 percent.


In a time when Democrats are pushing to increase federal control of our healthcare system it is time for the Republicans to offer an alternative that stays true to conservative principles and finally create personalized healthcare for all Americans.
