Companies across the nation are continually shifting the burden of increasing health premiums to their employees. As such, employees and employers need to be taking advantage of the tax savings that come with deducting these premiums for payroll pre-tax. This can save both the employer and employee substantial amounts in tax savings.

To be able to deduct the premiums pre-tax a section 125 plan must be established and updated as laws are changed. There are 2 types of section 125 plans that are most common. A full service section 125 cafeteria plan allows the pre-tax deductions of premiums as well as the pre-tax deduction for dependent child care and FSA (Flexible Spending Account) contributions. The second is a section 125 premium only plan (POP), which allows for pre-tax deductions of premiums and HSA (Health Savings Accounts) contributions.
