How is Group Private Medical Insurance Taxed?

I’ve noticed a small amount of tax taken out of my monthly salary for my Private Health Insurance. How does this work? Should I be paying tax on this?

Question asked by Emma Collins

If the premium for Group Health Insurance is paid for by your employer it counts as a P11D benefit. This means that you would be liable for tax on the premiums as it counts as a benefit in kind.

When your earnings are taxed the amount that your employer paid for the premiums is added to your earnings and you are taxed on that amount. This is all arranged by your employer with HMRC so you don’t need to do anything.

In exchange, you get access to fast treatment in top-notch facilities for any eligible medical condition you might suffer from, all of which is covered by your employer.

For more information, see our Group Health Insurance page.

Good interaction between client and advisor. Drew knew his brief; articulated and explained the issues clearly and answered questions fully. This all helped me clarify what I wanted and so we agreed on our action swiftly. I am a very satisfied client. Thank you.
