Re: [IP] Insurance MSA

     I am familiar with a flexible spending account which is a tax break for 
people.  It is money which is taken out of your paycheck pre-tax.  When you have
medical expenses not covered by insurance, you submit receipts and the money is 
taken out of your account and mailed to you.

The advantagee is you get a tax break on the money - no taxes paid.

The disadvantage is if you don't use the money by the end of the year, the 
amount left over goes to the government.  You need to have a good idea of how 
much your medical expenses would be.

There are flexible spending accounts for medical expenses and child care
