We have calculated the medical costs that are associated with the monthly fee and entry fee using the per-capita (actuarial) method for residents whose contracts exclude prescription drug coverage. The actuarial method assumes that the per-capita amount will continue to apply regardless of the level of care.
Based on the characteristics of the residents in 2021, the prepaid health care amount has been calculated on a per-capita basis, reflecting that health care is utilized on an individual basis. The monthly fee medical deduction for 2021 has been determined to be $1,420 per month per resident. For new residents who paid an entry fee in 2021, the medical deduction has been determined to be $108,027 for a single occupancy and $182,373 for a double occupancy.
The cost of medical care combined with any other allowable medical expense you have paid in 2021 is deductible only to the extent they exceed a specified percentage of your adjusted gross income. Please make reference to the instructions for completing Schedule A of the Federal Tax Form 1040.
As always, please consult your personal tax advisor if you have any questions concerning your allowable medical deduction for both Federal and State income tax.
