Can I deduct health insurance payments?

Yes, that is entered as Medical Expenses under Deductions & Credits. 

 

Whether this will benefit you depends on whether you take the Standard Deduction or Itemize Deductions.

Can I deduct health insurance payments?

Yes, just remember the total of all health insurance payments and medical expenses must exceed 7.5% of your AGI to be deductible.  Also the total of all deductions must then exceed the standard deduction for your filing status.  eg. single with 1 exemption the standard deduction is $15,700.
