I took out a loan from a "medical lending" company in 2015 and paid it off later that year. All of the loan went to pay for necessary medical expenses (paid directly from the lending company to the doctors and pharmacies) and I will be itemizing the full amount of the principle on my schedule A.
My question is, can the fees and/or interest I paid on the loan be considered part of the qualified medical expenses?
I read IRS Topic 502 about what constitutes deductible medical expenses, but it does not mention financing. If possible I would like confirmation of the answer in an IRS publication or other official source.
