1099-R, box 5, where does that flow to?

I have a client who claims that the amount in Box 5 of his federal 1099-R is for health insurance payments and should be expensed on Schedule A

If he is a retired public safety employee, there is a section on the 1099R under the caption insurance.  If not, just enter it on schedule A like he said.
