Health Care Premium Deductions

My employer's offered healthcare costs are rising significantly so they have offered if we find a less expensive plan on the marketplace they will still cover 50% of the premium. The way they will do this is by paying it in our salary each month, but not listed as a reimburement, effectively increasing my taxable income. I don't itemize so I am wondering if it is still possible to deduct the healthcare premiums or if they would need to meet the unremibursed medical expenses threshold first?
