IA health insurance deduction, not itemizing

Level 2

I have a client that has paid health insurance premiums, but can't itemize on the IA return.  There is a provision for this to be deductible to arrive at taxable income.  The return won't calculate this deduction.  Can the health insurance premiums be deducted against all types of income, dividends, interest primarily?  It appears when the system reduces the IA income for retirement income, SS, it won't allow the health insurance deduction to arrive at taxable income.

Client has $310K in dividends, $8K in interest, $45K in retirement, $47 in SS.  The health insurance was paid with after tax dollars.
