My employer reimbursed me for my medical premiums. These funds are included in box 1 on my W-2. Is this taxable income? Can I deduct this cost?

[Edited 1/19/2016] If your employer included the reimbursement in box 1, then the amount is taxable. If you itemize, you  may deduct the cost of your health insurance if you are filing Schedule A and your total health costs, including insurance, exceed 10% of your Adjusted Gross Income.
