CHPA and several of its member companies who manufacture and market leading over-the-counter oral care products, including Colgate-Palmolive, Haleon, Kenvue, Lornamead, Procter & Gamble, and Sanofi, joined Members of Congress on Capitol Hill this week to celebrate the introduction of HR 8599, the Oral Health Products Inclusion Act.

CHPA released the following statement today applauding the introduction of HR 8599, the Oral Health Products Inclusion Act. This bipartisan legislation, sponsored by U.S. Reps. Jeff Van Drew (NJ-02), Brad Schneider (IL-10), Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11), and Jimmy Panetta (CA-19), would increase access to certain oral care items, including manual and electric toothbrushes, water flossers, anti-cavity toothpaste, mouthwash, and similar oral care products by recognizing them as “qualified medical expenses” that can be purchased with Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) funds. Extending eligibility to oral care products so Americans can better manage their unique oral care needs builds upon a previous bipartisan victory in 2020, which reinstated FSA/HSA eligibility for OTC medicines, and for the first time, feminine care products, as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

CHPA applauds Representatives Curtis and Gottheimer for introducing bipartisan legislation that would make dietary supplements eligible expenses under tax-preferred flexible spending arrangements or health savings accounts.

As noted in last week’s Weekly Voice, late last week Representatives John Curtis (R-Utah) and Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.) introduced H.R. 5214, legislation to allow consumers to use HSA and FSA accounts to purchase dietary supplements. This past March, CHPA hosted official meetings with both members of Congress separately to help build relationships and discuss our priorities. This legislation is a direct result of those conversations. Both representatives are leaders in the 60-Member Problem Solvers Caucus, made up of centrist members of Congress, so their leadership on this issue is important.
