Paying all deductible medical expenses
by Linda Pittman
(Taylors, SC, USA)
Our church has decided to not only pay pastors medical premium but the $2,500 deductible as needed and all prescription costs (as they are not covered under the medical insurance plan). These are benefits not included on his W-2. The only items on his W-2 are compensation and housing allowance. Is this legal? I am the church treasurer.
