Deductions & credits

Yes, you can deduct medical expenses/insurance if you itemize and the total expenses for you, your spouse, and your dependents exceed 10% of your adjusted gross income (7.5% if you're 65 or older as of December 31, 2016). The deduction is limited to the expenses above and beyond this amount.

See Deducting Medical, Dental, and Vision Expenses
