LTSS as it relates to Medical Expense Deduction

by National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys

If Congress ends the Medical Expense Deduction, many Americans paying for Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) costs will not be able to pay for both LTSS and federal income tax at the same time. Raising the standard deduction and lowering rates will not address the issue. Why? Because many chronically ill Americans will pay all of their income towards care, and without the Medical Expense Deduction they could still have a tax liability that they cannot afford to pay.
