Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Unfortunately, to be deductible as SE insurance premiums, the premiums would have to be paid by the corporation or paid by you and reimbursed by the corporation and included on your w2.
From IRS website:
... If the shareholder purchased the health insurance in his own name and paid for it with his own funds, the shareholder would not be allowed an above-the-line deduction. On the other hand, if the shareholder purchased the health insurance in his own name but the S corporation either directly paid for the health insurance or reimbursed the shareholder for the health insurance and also included the premium payment in the shareholder’s W-2, the shareholder would be allowed an above-the-line deduction...
