Significant tax advantages may be available to employers who offer group health insurance coverage to their employees. Employers can generally deduct 100% of the health insurance premiums they pay on qualifying group health plans. Providing health insurance coverage to employees as part of a total compensation package may also result in reduced payroll taxes for employers. Additionally, when the employer offers group health coverage, it's possible for an employee's share of the premium to be paid with pre-tax dollars, resulting in tax savings for the employee. Check with your accountant or tax advisor for specific tax benefits for your business and employees.
