Question 2 of 3 in Health Care Reform Of 2010 For Employed Insured Single
I’m a fifty-year old single man (never married) and my income is substantially above the median. I carry my own health insurance because I don’t like the option given by my employer. Is there anything in the health care reform overhaul of 2010 for me?
Not yet, but there will be something good in three years. Part of the health care reform package of 2010 established government-approved long term care benefits which employers will be able to offer on a payroll deduction basis. The premiums are not tax-deductible, but you will be able to use HSA funds to pay for the premiums (making them pre-tax) if you have that type of an account.
