Small Employer And Med Supps

Have looked high and low for some guidance on this:

Under ACA, can either the employer or employee deduct premiums for a Medicare Supplment? This employer is well under 20 employee so Medicare is primary. Currently there are no group health benefits offered, although that is likely to change. Any help would be a huge relief!

I'd have to go back and look for which specific rules kick in on 1/1/14 that create the most concern but I'd be careful about the employer paying for a Medicare supplement because it potenially fails some of the minimum plan design requirements for employer provided coverage.

What do you mean by "deduct premiums"?

Deduct where and when?

Can the employee's share of the Medicare supp premium be deducted pre-tax? Can the employer's share be taken as a business expense?
