What are some examples of common qualifying health care expenses?

As long as they were unreimbursed (meaning your insurance company or employer did NOT pay you back), any amount you paid for the following items qualifies:
  • Prescription medicine or insulin
  • Hospital costs and nursing care
  • Medical, dental, and vision examinations and treatment by a certified health professional
  • Eyeglasses, hearing aids, braces, crutches, and wheelchairs
Do NOT include premiums for long-term care insurance, as these premiums need to be entered separately.

If you were eligible to participate in Medicare and/or a subsidized health insurance plan for only a portion of the year, you can enter the dental, vision, and health care insurance premiums you paid for that portion of the year during which you were NOT eligible to participate in Medicare and/or a subsidized health insurance plan.
