I guess I should add that there must be something medically directed at the treatment of your condition about this program as opposed to general wellness. IOW, my doctor is a broken record about exercise, but a gym membership wouldn't be deductible even if he wrote the instruction on a prescription pad.

What if the doctor wrote (I am making this up): "12 leg presses of 100# each, 12 Ab Crunches of 80# each, 12 arm curls of 40# each, 12 Arm extensions ... 25 minutes on treadmill with 5% slope at 4 m.p.h., 25 minutes on exercise bike ...; all 3 times a week, for cardio rehab"? I.e., a very specific exercise program for a specific medical condition.

I suppose the paid bill from the provider would still be required.
