    Situation: minor child is being treated at an out of state in-patient medical facility.
    Question: Travel expenses for the child to and from the facility are deductible, correct?
    If parental visits are requested as part of the ongoing treatment (but not required), are the travel expenses of the parents also a deductible medical expense?
    If the parents visit simply to check on the welfare of the minor child, are such expenses deductible as medical travel expenses?

    See IRS Pub 502. Basically expenses are deductible with certain limits.
