According to the book I used when I recently passed an H&R Block tax preparation course, "premiums paid for medical insurance are deductible if they provide for reimbursement for hospitalization, surgical fees, other medical or dental expenses, prescription drugs, or lost or damaged contact lenses". However, it is not deductible if it covers "loss of life, limb, or sight".

I believe this would be on Schedule A, line 1. However, considering that itemizing loses you your standard deduction, you might wish to go without itemizing unless it exceeds the standard deduction. Also, if the medical expenses do not exceed 7.5% of your adjusted gross income(found on lines 37 and 38 of the 1040), you will not be getting a deduction from it.

(This is US tax law. If you are still located in India, then this does not apply to you)
