Employer Reimburses Individual Health Insurance Premiums

By on | No Comments

Question: Why can’t employer reimburse individual insurance premiums?

Answer: Employers can reimburse individual health insurance premiums, but the reimbursement is not tax deductible for the employer and is taxable as income for the employee. The employer would have to establish a Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) in order to enjoy the same tax advantages of group health insurance - deductible premiums and pre-tax income for the employee.
