Your PeopleKeep reimbursement benefit allows you to be reimbursed for expenses that you, your spouse, and your children incur throughout the year. Any dependent that you're claiming on your taxes is considered a dependent for this benefit. You can be reimbursed for your dependent's eligible insurance premiums and medical expenses.
You can't be reimbursed for premiums for a parent's policy because the IRS doesn't consider you responsible for any portion of that premium.
Spouses and dependents also qualify for the PeopleKeep tax benefits as long as they’re covered under a major medical policy. They can have coverage under the eligible employee’s family policy, through their own individual or family policy, or through the group insurance policy from their own employer.
If spouses or dependents don’t have insurance, the employee must report reimbursements for their personal expenses as taxable income at the end of the year.
If an individual who isn’t a dependent of the employee receives reimbursement through PeopleKeep, this could lead to improper payment.
