Parents have asked us if 3D Learner expenses can be charged to medical insurance and or to a vehicle like a Health Savings Accounts.
We are not aware of any cases where the expenses can be charged under medical insurance.
There may be a few employers who pay for tuition for your child for special programs, but these types of programs are very rare, but there are...
Health Savings Accounts, Medical Savings Accounts and Health Reimbursement Accounts where you may be able to charge the costs for tuition, travel and lodging per Publication 502 that has been copied from the IRS website http://www.irs.gov/publications/p502/ar02.html#d0e1883
Quoted from From Publication 502 - Main Contents
You can include in medical expenses fees you pay on a doctor's recommendation for a child's tutoring by a teacher who is specially trained and qualified to work with children who have learning disabilities caused by mental or physical impairments, including nervous system disorders.
You can include in medical expenses the cost (tuition, meals, and lodging) of attending a school that furnishes special education to help a child to overcome learning disabilities. A doctor must recommend that the child attend the school. Overcoming the learning disabilities must be a principal reason for attending the school, and any ordinary education received must be incidental to the special education provided. Special education includes:
- Teaching Braille to a visually impaired person,
- Teaching lip reading to a hearing impaired person, or
- Giving remedial language training to correct a condition caused by a birth defect.
You cannot include in medical expenses the cost of sending a problem child to a school where the course of study and the disciplinary methods have a beneficial effect on the child's attitude if the availability of medical care in the school is not a principal reason for sending the student there.
