Do I put health benefits in box 15 of my 1099-R, as my employer does, even though in TurboTax box 15 is designated for local tax withholding?

<P>In the 1099-R provided by my former employer (US Department of State), Box 15 is used to list my "Health benefits."&nbsp; The model 1099-R provided by Turbotax reserves this space for local tax withheld (I have none).&nbsp; &nbsp;Do I enter my health benefits here anyway?</P>
