PHIT allows Americans to use pre-tax health account dollars to prevent disease, not just treat it.

  • Inactivity can lead to higher health costs and chronic diseases 
  • More than 4 in 10 adults are obese, and more than 1 in 8 has type 2 diabetes. Physical activity is a cost-effective way to prevent and reduce chronic diseases like heart disease, stroke, and type-2 diabetes, which account for approximately 86% of nationwide healthcare costs. - Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC)

Studies show that those who exercise report 43.2% fewer self-reported mental health burdens per month than non-exercisers; something that is so important during the pandemic 

- National Institutes of Health (NIH)

It's time for Congress to pass PHIT and help take some of the financial burden off parents and active adults so they can patriciate in sports and stay active & healthy!
