Keep in mind that no medical expenses can be deducted until the 7.5 percent adjusted-gross-income threshold is reached, and even then only by taxpayers who itemize deductions. (For more information, see IRS Publication 502, "Medical and Dental Expenses.")
With those caveats, here are some deductible medical expenses:
Fees paid to doctors , dentists, surgeons, chiropractors, psychiatrists, psychologists and Christian Science practitioners.
Hospital services , certain long-term-care services, nursing services and laboratory fees.
Acupuncture treatments or inpatient treatment at a center for alcohol or drug addiction.
Transportation expenses such as tolls and parking fees, taxis, and bus, train and airplane fares for trips to doctors' offices, health-care facilities and laboratories.
Canes , walkers, orthopedic shoes and other equipment for the disabled.
Over-the-counter medical supplies such as bandages and aspirin.
