IRS announces expansion of "Health Coverage for Older Children".

Per the IRS, "Health coverage for an employee's children under 27 years of age is now generally tax-free to the employee. This expanded health care tax benefit applies to various work place and retiree health plans.

These changes immediately allow employers with cafeteria plans –– plans that allow employees to choose from a menu of tax-free benefit options and cash or taxable benefits –– to permit employees to begin making pre-tax contributions to pay for this expanded benefit.

This also applies to self-employed individuals who qualify for the self-employed health insurance deduction on their federal income tax return."
