dependent care. 2010 tax forms and instructions (See chapter 32 and Publication 503, Child and Dependent Care Expenses. 2010 tax forms and instructions ) You can choose to apply them either way as long as you do not use the same expenses to claim both a credit and a medical expense deduction. 2010 tax forms and instructions How Do You Treat Reimbursements? You can include in medical expenses only those amounts paid during the taxable year for which you received no insurance or other reimbursement. 2010 tax forms and instructions Insurance Reimbursement You must reduce your total medical expenses for the year by all reimbursements for medical expenses that you receive from insurance or other sources during the year. 2010 tax forms and instructions This includes payments from Medicare. 2010 tax forms and instructions Even if a policy provides reimbursement for only certain specific medical expenses, you must use amounts you receive from that policy to reduce your total medical expenses, including those it does not reimburse. 2010 tax forms and instructions Example. 2010 tax forms and instructions You have insurance policies that cover your hospital and doctors' bills but not your nursing bills. 2010 tax forms and instructions The insurance you receive for the hospital and doctors' bills is more than their charges. 2010 tax forms and instructions In figuring your medical deduction, you must reduce the total amount you spent for medical care by the total amount of insurance you received, even if the policies do not cover some of your medical expenses. 2010 tax forms and instructions Health reimbursement arrangement (HRA). 2010 tax forms and instructions   A health reimbursement arrangement is an employer-funded plan that reimburses employees for medical care expenses and allows unused amounts to be carried forward. 2010 tax forms and instructions An HRA is funded solely by the employer and the reimbursements for medical expenses, up to a maximum dollar amount for a coverage period, are not included in your income. 2010 tax forms and instructions Other reimbursements. 2010 tax forms and instructions   Generally, you do not reduce medical expenses by payments you receive for: Permanent loss or loss of use of a member or function of the body (loss of limb, sight, hearing, etc. 2010 tax forms and instructions ) or disfigurement to the extent the payment is based on the nature of the injury without regard to the amount of time lost from work, or Loss of earnings. 2010 tax forms and instructions   You must, however, reduce your medical expenses by any part of these payments that is designated for medical costs. 2010 tax forms and instructions See How Do You Figure and Report the Deduction on Your Tax Return , later. 2010 tax forms and instructions   For how to treat damages received for personal injury or sickness, see Damages for Personal Injuries , later. 2010 tax forms and instructions You do not have a medical deduction if you are reimbursed for all of your medical expenses for the year. 2010 tax forms and instructions Excess reimbursement. 2010 tax forms and instructions   If you are reimbursed more than your medical expenses, you may have to include the excess in income. 2010 tax forms and instructions You may want to use Figure 21-A to help you decide if any of your reimbursement is taxable. 2010 tax forms and instructions Premiums paid by you. 2010 tax forms and instructions   If you pay either the entire premium for your medical insurance or all of the costs of a plan similar to medical insurance and your insurance payments or other reimbursements are more than your total medical expenses for the year, you have an excess reimbursement. 2010 tax forms and instructions Generally, you do not include the excess reimbursement in your gross income. 2010 tax forms and instructions Premiums paid by you and your employer. 2010 tax forms and instructions   If both you and your employer contribute to your medical insurance plan and your employer's contributions are not included in your gross income, you must include in your gross income the part of your excess reimbursement that is from your employer's contribution. 2010 tax forms and instructions   See Publication 502 to figure the amount of the excess reimbursement you must include in gross income. 2010 tax forms and instructions Reimbursement in a later year. 2010 tax forms and instructions   If you are reimbursed in a later year for medical expenses you deducted in an earlier year, you generally must report the reimbursement as income up to the amount you previously deducted as medical expenses. 2010 tax forms and instructions   However, do not report as income the amount of reimbursement you received up to the amount of your medical deductions that did not reduce your tax for the earlier year. 2010 tax forms and instructions For more information about the recovery of an amount that you claimed as an itemized deduction in an earlier year, see Itemized Deduction Recoveries in chapter 12. 2010 tax forms and instructions Figure 21-A. 2010 tax forms and instructions Is Your Excess Medical Reimbursement Taxable?
