I believe for 2017 taxes the threshold for deducting medical expences has been lowered to 7 1/2%. The rate is always much lower than the standard business deduction

Dollar amounts per mile vary for medical and charitable mileage by year and are cited on irs.gov.
Please note: You can only claim medical expenses like mileage if the service is performed for yourself or your dependents. If your parents file their own taxes, your mileage paid by you is not deductible.
You can only claim mileage for actual medical related expenses like trip to doctor or pharmacy. You CANNOT claim for trips to grocery store or bookstore, etc. You cannot claim mileage for any part of the trip not related to medical care if you go more than 1 place.
You can only claim medical expenses in excess of 10% on Schedule A (unless you are above certain age limits).
You cannot submit your mileage expenses for reimbursement to Medicare or Medicaid in the majority of instances.

Check the IRS site if you are talking about a deduction for your taxes or a tax consultant.

Who are you submitting this claim to? Most people don't get paid for their time or mileage unless their parents let the moths out of their own their wallets.
