For further details, see discussion under the heading, "Capital Expenses," below. Car - Medical expenses are reimbursable for special hand controls and other special equipment installed in a car for the use of a person with disabilities.

For example, face lifts, hair transplants, hair removal (electrolysis), liposuction and teeth bleaching generally are not deductible.

Legal fees - Legal fees paid to authorize treatment for mental illness are reimbursable. However, any part of a legal fee that is a management fee, for example, a guardianship or estate management fee, is not reimbursable. Licensing requirements - Neither the tax code nor IRS regulations require a plan participant to determine whether a provider is qualified, authorized under state law or licensed to practice before using his/her services. In Revenue Ruling 63-91, the IRS ruled that: "Amounts paid for medical services rendered by practitioners, such as chiropractors, psychotherapists, and others rendering similar type services, constitute expenses for 'medical care' within the provisions of section 213 of the Code, even though the practitioners who perform the services are not required by law to be, or are not (even though required by law) licensed, certified, or otherwise qualified to perform such services." The main issue is the nature of the treatment, not the license held by the practitioner. Thus, services provided by a range of organizations and individuals may be reimbursable, including care provided by hospitals, medical doctors, dentists, eye doctors, chiropractors, nurses, osteopaths, podiatrists, psychiatrists, psychologists, physical therapists, acupuncturists, psychoanalysts and others.

The reimbursable amount cannot exceed $50 for each night for each person. Lodging is included for a person for whom transportation expenses are a medical expense because that person is traveling with the person receiving the medical care. For example, if a parent is traveling with a sick child, up to $100 per night is reimbursable as a medical expense for lodging.
Meals and lodging away from home for medical treatment that is not received at a medical facility, or for the relief of a specific condition, are not reimbursable even if the trip is made on the advice of a doctor.

If you have dental insurance that covers orthodontia, you will be required to submit both an explanation of benefits (EOB) and an itemized bill showing payments you have made.
