You should look into moving to a high deductible health plan at your work that allows you to open an HSA. This is really the best retirement account out there as it has characteristics of both a Tradition IRA (contributions are pre-tax) and a Roth (withdrawals are not taxed as long as they are used for qualified medical expenses). If you have the means to pay your medical deductibles out of pocket (and it sounds like you do), you can just treat your HSA as another tax-advantaged retirement account.
