self-employed health insurance deduction

I am a partner in a business, and I paid health insurance premiums that were reported on my K-1.  I entered them in TurboTax on my K-1 under Box 13 (Other Deductions), Code W (Other) in Easy-Step, and described them as Self-Employed Health Insurance Premiums, but they do not appear on Form 1040, Schedule 1, Line 16.  And, I can't override that box on Form 1040, Schedule 1 to enter the amount.  I think I'm entitled to a deduction - - how do I fix this?

You should go back and edit your Schedule K-1.

 

Follow the TurboTax interview until you get to a page titled Describe the Partnership. Check the box  I personally paid health insurance and/or long-term care insurance premiums for myself and my family.

 

 

On the next page, you can enter your self-employed health insurance.
