No, generally, you can't include premiums for any month you were also eligible to participate in any subsidized health plan maintained by any employer of you or your spouse, for the Self-employed health insurance deduction, Form 1040, line 29.
You may be able to deduct on Form 1040, Schedule A, Itemized Deductions.
See the TurboTax FAQ: Can I deduct my health insurance premiums when I’m self-employed?
Medical, dental, and vision expenses are reported on Schedule A and entered in the Deductions & Credits section:
- Open your tax return.
(To do this, sign in to TurboTax and click the orange Take me to my return button.)
- Search for Schedule A and then click the "Jump to" link in the search results.
- Answer Yes on the Did you have any medical expenses in 2016? screen.
- You will then be prompted to enter your medical expenses, starting with prescriptions.
If you're using Federal Free Edition or Basic and your medical expenses are large enough that you would benefit from itemizing deductions, you'll be prompted to upgrade to Deluxe, as the Federal Free and Basic versions do not handle Schedule A.
