During December of 2012 my wife had a diagnostic test done. The insurance company paid it's part in 2012. We received and paid the bill for our part in January of 2013. Do we claim this on the taxes for 2012 or 2013?

Thanks,
PF (The test results were good.)

2013, the year you paid it. Had you paid it with a credit card when the service was delivered in 2012 it would be a 2012 deduction regardless of when you paid the credit card bill.
