CAN Statement on the Bill to Lower Costs for Family Caregivers

Supporting Family Caregivers Advocating for Lower Costs

Washington, DC (November 15, 2023) —Caregiver Action Network (CAN) proudly supports family caregivers. They endorse the Lowering Costs for Caregivers Act. This act proposes using tax-free health savings accounts and flexible spending accounts for medical expenses. It covers spouses, dependents, and parents of individuals.

As of now, American caregivers are struggling to pay costs for their loved ones’ needs out-of-pocket. This legislation is a significant advancement for caregivers. It aims to provide financial support that can enhance their lives and the lives of those they care for. It represents a crucial step forward in recognizing and supporting caregivers’ vital role in society.

CAN appreciate Senators Jacky Rosen (D-NV) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA) for their bipartisan efforts on this legislation. They have collaborated to bring this important legislation to fruition. We hope to see more bipartisan action like this in the future so that together, we may further enhance the lives of caregivers and their loved ones.
