Help us #PassPHIT!

The Personal Health Investment Today Act (PHIT - H.R.1267 and S.482) will allow Americans to use flexible spending accounts (FSAs) and health savings accounts (HSAs) to pay for health club memberships, fitness equipment, exercise videos, and youth sports leagues. Currently, the IRS code only allows these accounts to be used for medical expenses like prescription medications and doctor visits. If passed, it will allow individuals to use up to $1,000 per year to cover these expenses and families to use up to $2,000 per year.

  • PHIT will help Americans save 20-30% on yearly expenses related to physical activity. 
  • PHIT will make being physically active an easier financial choice for hard-working Americans. 
  • PHIT has bipartisan support in Congress, but it needs your help. Ask your Representatives and Senators to #PassPHIT.
PHIT was introduced in Congress on March 1, 2017. See the full list of PHIT Sponsors at Why Pass PHIT! 

  • Reached our goal, but we're still going!!!

    May 16, 2017
    Wooo! We have surpassed our initial goal of 250 supporters! That's awesome and we're getting more supporters every day! 

    The Thunderclap goes out on Friday and we cannot thank you enough for helping us spread the word about how great PHIT is and how it could benefit a lot of people.
