Tax breaks for taking care of ourselves?


Recommended Posts

A friend of mine brought this up. Not everyone goes in and out of the hospital for things. Some people are healthier and seldom need medical treatments of any kind. She was saying they should give people more tax returns at the end of the year for not using the medical system in the US. I know this would likely have to tie in with insurance or something but I think it could be a good thing for a lot of people and an insensitive to eat healthier and exercise more.

In theory, this sounds like a fantastic motive to keep people living healthier lives without forcing a hand in it but will that many people take advantage of something like this? I don't think they would. It would likely end up being viewed as a discrimination issue as well because those who make more can afford to eat healthier foods.
