  • health insurance for 2017 (yes, it\'s not a typo, 2017)

    Hi!

    so while transitioning from employed to independent I didn't actually get healthcare for 2017. yes, yes, I know, the doctor is barefoot etc.

     

    I would still like to be able to put money pre tax in a health spending account for 2017 if I can.

    Do I have to have health insurance for that?

    If so, can I still get that done in 2017?

     

    Thank you!

    You have to have a qualified high deductible health plan and you have to meet the last month rule. The last month rule states that: if you are an eligible individual on the first day of the last month of your tax year (usually Dec. 1), you are considered an eligible individual for the entire year. You won't be eligible for 2017.

      That was gutsy.

      Wait. You're an MD/JD working as a financial advisor, you went for a year without health insurance, and you're asking about HSA rules? What kind of financial advice do you do?

        Hi

        I took the accredited wealthemanagement adviser course. I'm by no means a professional.

        And I am in my second year of law school.

        Should I remove this from my profile? too misleading?

        I was super busy working (and doing some real estate investing) and just didn't have time to deal with it. Now that i'm married.... well... different story

          No, it's fine to leave it. I was just surprised when I put the question together with the credentials.
