Thank you for using Just Answer.
You may not deduct insurance premiums paid by an employer-sponsored health insurance plan unless the premiums are included in Box 1 of your husband's Form W-2. As long as the premiums are included in income then you are allowed to include them in calculating your Schedule A Medical deductions. If the premiums are taken out of wages before the amount is taxed then you may not use them as a medical deduction.
I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX information is useful,
How do I know if they are or aren't included in box 1? The only thing on his last paystub for 2009 that indicates it is "exclududed from federal taxable wages" are his 401K contributions.
