Individual taxpayers are allowed to deduct the cost of their policy (and that of their spouse) as part of their medical expense deduction to the extent that their medical expenses exceed 10% of their adjusted gross income. Those who are self-employed or own an LLC, S Corp, or C Corp have more extensive deductions. Ask for our Tax Guide. Tax-qualified long-term care insurance benefits are generally tax-free.
