    Yes providing that the sole proprietor is not eligible to participate in a group health insurance plan.  Eligibility is determined on a month to month basis.

    What this means is, if you are a sole proprietor with a spouse who is employed and has access to group health insurance, you are NOT able to deduct health insurance premiums paid on a plan purchased in lieu of the employers group coverage.

    This holds true for all months that your spouse is employed and is eligible to participate in the plan.

    Another example of ineligibility would be a sole proprietor who also has a part or full time job where group health insurance benefits are available from that job.
