Qualifying Expenses: Most medical and dental costs paid out-of-pocket, including insurance premiums, can be deducted. Long-term care insurance, in some cases, may also qualify. For those instances where you are traveling longer distances for health care, keep track of the mileage. The 2016 medical rate is 19 cents per mile.
Note: You cannot claim deduction for expenses already covered from a Health Saving Account or Flexible Spending Arrangement.
