Greetings Experts --

Last year that last year I was diagnosed as having the early stages COPD.

This spring my pulmonologist recommended that I participate in a "re-hab" program operated under the auspices of a local hospital. The program is covered by Medicare for a total of 30 sessions (10 weeks). At the end of the 30 sessions I will be eligible to join a "maintenance" program at a cost of $80/month and am planning on doing so. The maintenance program will not be covered by any of my insurance programs.

Is it possible to make the cost of the maintenance program a tax deductible medical expense?? What, if anything, would be required from my doctor to allow the program to qualify as a deductible medical expense.
