    I am thinking about taking out a long-term care insurance policy. Does anyone know if you can deduct premiums as a medical expense?

    Yes, they are. There's a graduated schedule:

    Qualified long-term care premiums up to the amounts shown below for 2008:

    Age 40 or under – $310.

    Age 41 to 50 – $580.

    Age 51 to 60 – $1,150.

    Age 61 to 70 – $3,080.

    Age 71 or over – $3,850.
