If you are a self employed individual, the IRS will allow you to deduct your health insurance expense so long as the policy is in your name (or the name of the company you own if applicable).  

Unfortunately, the IRS will not allow a deduction for Self Employed Heath Insurance when the insurance policy is purchased through your spouse's employer.
