    medical mileage

    Is mileage to/from pharmacies and doctors (to pickup prescriptions since controlled substance) considered medical mileage? I would think so.

    We're no tax experts, but there seems to be evidence from a number of websites that "Medical miles can be claimed for miles driven to and from the doctor or dentist, and to and from a pharmacy to pick up a prescription."  Nice catch!  You haven't been working on your taxes, have you?  Smile [:)]

    You can keep track of this information using HealthFrame's "Related Information" feature:
    • In the medication record for the prescription, create a new "Related Information" link to an expense record tracking mileage to the pharmacy.
    • Run the medical mileage report and it should pick up your information about commuting to your pharmacy for prescription medication.
    I have modified the Susan Marie Taylor sample PHR to illustrate this usage.

    This is a clever way to recoup some of those commute expenses.  Thanks for sharing in the community forum!
