The latest version of TurboTax Home & Business for 2017 does not allow for entering Self-employed Health Insurance. What is wrong?

When trying to Update Self-employed Health Insurance (page 1 of an attached file), the next page reads: "Self-employed health insurance must be under each corresponding business... locate the appropriate business activity on the topics list and enter your insurance premium there" (page 2 of the attached file). When pressing button Continue, it goes back to page 1. When going through Visit All in the section Less Common Business Situations > Self-employed Health Insurance, the same page appears and it seems there is no way to enter the insurance information there. Is this a software bug or some specific actions need to be followed to enter the deduction?

Enter your self-employed health insurance premiums under your business expenses for your business. 

In your attached file, select Business Income and Expenses at the top of the page. Then select edit next to your business and scroll down to the Business Expense section, and select Other Common Business Expenses.

Scroll list and select Insurance Payments.
