Long term care deduction- my itemized deduction doesn't include all the long term care premium.

Level 1

Not all the long term care premium of the taxpayer is carrying over to schedule A. 

What causes some to be presumably disallowed?

Limit on long-term care premiums you can deduct.

The amount you can deduct for qualified long-term care insurance contracts (as defined in Pub. 502) depends on the age, at the end of 2018, of the person for whom the premiums were paid. See the following chart for details.

IF the person was, at the end of 2018, age . . .THEN the most you can deduct is . . .
40 or under                                                          $ 420
41–50                                                                  $ 780
51–60                                                                  $ 1,560
61–70                                                                  $ 4,160
71 or older                                                           $ 5,200

There is an annual maximum that is allowed to be deducted.
