This is BC/BC with great options.
I have heard a lot of companies are doing this. Is there anyway to get around the taxed v pre-tax dollars?

The big drawback is the money companies are giving people is taxed where insurance through your company is using pre-tax dollars.

So if you are currently receiving insurance through your company and it costs you $600 per month, if a company switches to paying you instead of providing insurance, that $600 insurance will cost you an extra $150 a month to buy. (Assuming the premium price is the same as it was, and a 25% tax bracket)

Is there any way to set it up to buy insurance with pre-tax dollars?
