For those who are self-employed, health insurance premiums paid throughout the year can be deducted on their taxes. Even if you do not item deductions on Schedule A, these health insurance premiums can still be deducted on your tax return. For W-2 employees you can deduct out-of-pocket medical expenses and health insurance premiums only if you take the itemized deduction on your tax return. Employees looking to take this deduction can only do so if these premiums and other medical expenses when the amount exceeds 7.5% of your Adjusted Gross Income.
