HealthEquity®, the largest U.S. health savings trust organization, is pleased to offer a free webinar series that examines the effects of health care reform and Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) on Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) in four webinar presentations by Dr. William J. West during the month of April 2013.

“HSAs have gained major ground in recent years, helping Americans save billions of dollars for future medical care,” states Dr. West. “Recent legislation has solidified HSAs’ future and made them more attractive than ever to ‘win’ in today’s health care climate.”

Dr. West is a board-certified OB/GYN and graduate of Jefferson Medical College. He founded First MSA (Later First HSA) in 1999 as one of the first companies of its kind. Dr. West has been actively involved in the Consumer Directed Healthcare (CDH) industry. He is a member of the HSA Coalition, the AHIP HSA Council, the American Bankers Association HSA Council, and many other committees and councils. In addition, he has participated in town hall meetings with former President George W. Bush and continues to work with members of Congress and other regulatory agencies on CDH products, rules and regulations.
