Taxable income from health care reimbursements

Question:
 
Hello - I am an expat under the 30% ruling - I have international health insurance and my employer has been adding any amounts I am reimbursed for medical expenses to my taxable income ( so i am effectively paying 50% of my medical expenses) - Is this correct treatment?
 
Answer:
 
Medical expenses are normally reimbursed directly to you and not through the payroll administration. If however payments are made through your employer the reimbursements are tax free. If you would receive them directly they would be tax free too.
