Hi Cnchill1,

 

Welcome to the H&R Block community.

 

If this insurance premium was paid with dollars that were taxed (part of your distribution) which is not uncommon with retirement distributions, then you can deduct it in the medical expenses section of Schedule A.  You will find this in the adjustments & deductions section of the interview in the online software.

 

If you have any other questions I'll be glad to help.
