The vaccine is here! Now who exactly is going to pay for it? Mike and the guys shine some light on that very important question. The group then stays in Health Care land to discuss Medicare's “Donut-Hole” and the power of HSA accounts (Mike's a huge fan). Finally, the episode wraps up with a Stop-Loss Insurance calculation question.
Here's the Stop-Loss Provision question that was covered during this episode. And here are some additional resources that were discussed:
- IRS Publication 502: Medical and Dental Expenses
- IRS Publication 969: Health Savings Accounts and Other Tax-Favored Health Plans
- Medicare costs at a glance (medicare.gov)
We hope you enjoy. Happy Holidays!
