If you itemize deductions, you may deduct out-of-pocket medical expenses, including medical insurance premiums and fees you pay to a chiropractor for medical care. Medical expenses are deductible to the extent they exceed 10% of your adjusted gross income (AGI) (7.5% if you were age 65 or older in 2016).
There is a screen in the medical expenses section of TurboTax just for insurance premiums. Note that you should not enter medical insurance premiums reported elsewhere, such as Medicare Part B, C, or D premiums reported on Form SSA-1099. (Click the first screenshot below to enlarge it for reference.)
Enter your chiropractor expenses on the Tell us about anything spent on medical professionals screen. (Click the second screenshot below for reference.)
To enter out-of-pocket medical expenses:
- Open (continue) your return in TurboTax Online. (If your return isn't open, you'll need to sign in, click Take me to my return, then click Pick up where I left off.)
- Click My Account (top right of your screen).
- Select Tools.
- In the pop-up window, select Topic Search.
- In the search bar, type medical expenses.
- In the results box, highlight medical expenses, sch a, then click GO.
- Follow the onscreen instructions. Note that the medical expenses are divided into numerous categories. (The categories are: prescription medications, medical professionals, medical facility fees, x-ray and lab work fees, long term care services, eye care expenses, medical supplies and equipment, medical travel, insurance premiums, and other medical expenses.)
Note: If using the TurboTax CD/Download software, you'll use the Find function (instead of "My Account") to search for the topic.
