I have large medical bills this year that weren’t covered by insurance so I plan to itemize. Is there a form I have to file?

The total amount of itemized medical expenses that are deductible are entered on Schedule A of Form 1040. There is no separate form used to list the specific medical expenses. You do not have to attach any statement listing these expenses. Retain receipts for these expenses with your tax records.
