We all got allowances as kids. Sometimes, that was in exchange for mowing the lawn, or in my case, getting the balls, pads, and practices jerseys out of the station wagon.

Your Employer will be approached this fall with a new health care concept, the Health Reimbursement Arrangement, or HRA. The Employer will offer you a monthly allowance, from which you can buy YOUR OWN Health Insurance and maybe fund your HSA.
No COBRA Bullshit. Completely Portable. Administratively, $10-15 per employee per month, and they can administer the entire program online. No forms, or silly paper work.
And they can decide who gets what and why?
