Health insurance and related benefits like vision and dental plans are often offered by employers to their employees. Employees are able to pay the premiums for these employer-provided benefits as pre-tax deductions from their gross income. If an employee decides to purchase additional insurance not offered through his employer, he would, of course, pay any additional insurance premiums with money that was already subject to taxes.

In a similar way, our Benefits Office offers the healthcare sharing ministry, as well as vision, dental, life insurance, and other benefits, to FBMI missionaries. The premiums for all of these options are able to be pre-tax deductions from a missionary’s support. Any additional insurance purchased is paid using the personal portion of a missionary’s support and is not able to be reimbursed using the Accountable Reimbursement Plan or the EOM report.
