Update Feb 7, 2019.
TaxSlayer® will accurately compute the Qualified Business Income Deduction when the Health Insurance premiums to be used for the Self-employed Health Insurance Deduction are entered directly in the Schedule C - General Expense screen.

The distinction being made here is that TaxSlayer® will not properly make the deduction to QBI if the Health insurance premium amount to be used for the Self-employed Health Insurance Deduction is entered into the software as an Adjustment to Income.

For AARP tax sites that have held Sched C returns:

You are being asked to reopen the returns so that TaxSlayer® can recalculate the QBID. Further guidance will be provided once the amended regulations have been published in the OFR (Office of the Federal Register).

Find the full explanation on AARP NVP. Search for document titled QBI Deduction Update 2019-02.
