Medicare Part A premiums are not deductible if you're covered under Social Security or if you're a government employee who paid Medicare tax.

However, if you're not covered under Social Security (nor a government employee who paid Medicare tax) and you voluntarily enrolled in Medicare A, you can deduct those premiums.

Premiums for the other Medicare programs – Part B (supplemental medical insurance), Part C (Medicare Advantage), and Part D (voluntary prescription drug insurance) – are deductible.
