You don't need your 1095-C to file your tax return. Just keep the form with your tax records. 

 

You should enter your Medicare Part B.

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

 

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

 

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

In TurboTax, you can enter your medical premiums in the Federal section of the program. 

  1. Select Deductions & Credits 
  2. Scroll down to all deductions and select Medical
  3. Then select Medical Expenses

Continue through the screens until you see the following, where you can enter your premiums: 

Medical insurance premiums

 

 Please be aware, you may be able to report the cost as deductible medical expenses if you meet the Adjusted Gross Income threshold of 7.5% and are able to itemize.
