I have the option to remain on the previous employer's COBRA for the foreseable future. Their plan is much nicer than what my new employer is offering while being only a little more expensive.
However, the premiums for the new employer's plan will be deducted before taxes, which suddenly makes them a lot cheaper.
Is there any way the COBRA premiums can also be paid with before-tax monies?
I know, that I could deduct them if they exceeded a certain percentage of my income, but (with any luck) they will not...
I do have some money on HSA, but not much -- it would only cover a few months of COBRA-premiums.
