Can I claim self employed health insurance if my spouse doesn't get health insurance thru his employer but gets partial compensation to use towards our individual plan?

I am self employed. We have individual health insurance for our family. My husband's company does not offer him health insurance but does give him some compensation to use towards our premiums. Can I claim the amount we spend on health insurance premiums that is not covered by the "reimbursement" my husband receives? (For instance, we pay about $1500/month and my husband's company only gives him about $800/month to use towards health insurance.)

Yes, the un-reimbursed portion is deductible since this is not an employer-sponsored plan.
