You may be eligible to itemize deductions for medical expenses that you claim on IRS form Schedule A (1040) or claim with your insurance provider.
The Internal Revenue codes allows a deduction against a taxpayer's income for medical expenses incurred for the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of a disease.
Weight loss programs are deductible as medical expenses if the treatment is for a specific diagnosis by a physician such as obesity, hypertension, heart disease and diabetes. The key to eligibility is the specificity of the physician's prescription. Medical expenses incurred at an institution such as the Green Valley Medical Spa are deductible if prescribed by a physician and the physician issues a statement that the treatment is necessary to alleviate a physical or mental illness.
Current Federal mandates require health insurance providers to provide insureds with free preventative health care regardless of their deductibility provisions.
