Does Blue Cross qualify as a private plan and can yearly fees be claimed as a medical expense?

We appreciate you choosing TurboTax,

 

Blue cross also offers private health insurance, and if you are receiving private health insurance, then the following will apply.

 

Employee-paid premiums to a private health services plan are considered qualifying medical expenses and can be claimed by the employee on their income tax and benefit return.
