I had depleted my savings last year on my medical scheme and had a self payment gap to cover and then annual threshold benefits would kick in. Can I claim the self payment gap on my tax return?

Gap cover is treated as short term insurance and not medical cover which means it is not deductible for tax purposes unfortunately.
