Can I write off fixed indemnity health benefits like Aflac insurance?

Answer
Yes, you'll be able to deduct the premiums you pay for health insurance, including indemnity policies so long as you and your spouse (if applicable) are not eligible to participate in a subsidized health plan through an employer.
