@rock and a hard place As the rules states, if you do not live with your spouse for the last 6 months of the year (and not divorced) you can file as single or head of household.  And with that being said, you mentioned that you will be filing head of household, no you will not qualify for the 7.5% threshold for medical expenses.  BTW; congratulations and good luck!

I remember reading about this a few years ago with raising the % from 7.5 to 10.  This really angers me because of the cost of medical care and there will be less taxpayers able to use this deduction, let alone the carry over to your state return.  The ones that are able to itemize are the ones who are so in debt with their mortgage interest and etc.  And I know that I will not be able to itemize for 2013 and that also means that it will not carry over to my state return.  What does that mean, it means that I will get a smaller refund on my federal and state.  And that goes for everyone else...
