Without delving into the political motivations behind my intent at why I would want to pursue such a plan, I'm looking for some information regarding setting up a self-funded health insurance plan.
This is in the spirit of "solo 401ks", which don't actually exist. There is only the original 401k language with no special rules specifically for the "solo variant" but rather several simplifications by large swaths of compliance rules becoming irrelevant when only having an owner (and possible spouse) as participants.
I'd like to be able to contribute to an account as if I'm paying premiums for a qualified self-funded health insurance plan that will ideally comply with ACA federal mandates in case the penalty is reinstated for being uninsured., but more importantly allow me to make HSA and self-employed health insurance premium deductions. Obviously as healthcare providers are one of the suremost hazards to my health, the premiums won't actually be used for health care and so the funds contributed should still be accessible in some capacity -- think loopholes like HSA wellness purchases for personal emergency medical supplies or a 529 plan expenses for continuing education "tuition."
