How are you paying for health insurance if you are one of the millions recently laid off?

wooper asked:

I know COBRA is available for many, but it is very expensive to keep up and runs only for a limited period. Questions like this have been asked before and those against governement supported health care just accused those who didn’t have health insurance as lazy losers. But with the economy crashing, the scenario has changed. If you aren’t employed anymore and have no income and little savings, what are you doing for health insurance?
TAT…I left my job and my COBRA payment was $1,200 a month for me and my family. When you are unemployed, that is a LOT of money and not reasonable as you describe it. Many don’t have enough money for rent and food, much less that kind of money.

how can i tell if my health insurance benefits are pre taxed?

February 13th, 2009

montcoguy0o asked:

Keep in mind, your health insurance premiums can’t be deducted if they’re taken out of your paycheck as pre-tax dollars. However, after-tax health insurance premiums are deductible, but they still are subject to a limitation of 7.5% of your AGI. If you’re self-employed, you may deduct a portion of your health insurance premiums as an adjustment. The self-employed deductible portion is 100% in 2007.

Kris F asked:

It is my plan to start medical school next year, and I am concerned about health insurance. Since I can not work, I know that some school do provide health insurance, but is it including in tuition? And how exactly does it work? Is it the type of insurance that is limited to only the school’s health care system or is it broader? Please help.

Am I able to write off Health Insurance Premiums for tax purposes at the end of the year?

January 13th, 2009

Marcus W asked:

I am looking to purchase my own health insurance instead of going through my company. I know that the company takes out the cost on a pre-tax basis, but their insurance is not the greatest. If I do decided to sign up for health insurance, will I be able to use the cost of my own health insurance as a deduction fo tax purposes?

I’m having rhinoplasty. Health insurance should cover some of it since I’m going to correct a deviated septum for breathing problems. Anyone know what health insurance plan/s provides the most coverage for this procedure. I live in southern CA. Thanks.

What is a discount health insurance plan for self employed in California who is an Urban Planner?

January 1st, 2009

dionysus asked:

I know that certain trade organizations offer discount health insurance under group rates if you join. However, I am unaware of any groups for a person who is self employed as an expeditor–a person who works in the urban planning field filing cases. He pays a exhoribant monthy premium for his health insurance.
