I don't often address employee benefits issues on this blog because I don't myself practice in that area. However, a new law that just passed reinstates (to a degree) a health care reimbursement option that some smaller nonprofits may be able to take advantage of! Since I know only enough to get in trouble in this area, I asked my good friend Jewelie Grape to give me a summary. If you want to know more, I suggest you contact her directly or let me know and I would be happy to put you in contact with her!
