"You can include in medical expenses insurance premiums you pay for policies that cover medical care. Medical care policies can provide payment for treatment that includes:
Hospitalization, surgical services, X-rays,
Prescription drugs and insulin,
Replacement of lost or damaged contact lenses, and
Long-term care (subject to additional limitations). See Qualified Long-Term Care Insurance Contracts under Long-Term Care , later.
If you have a policy that provides payments for other than medical care, you can include the premiums for the medical care part of the policy if the charge for the medical part is reasonable. The cost of the medical part must be separately stated in the insurance contract or given to you in a separate statement."
Hope this helps,
