I have been paying the Medical Aid for myself, my wife & my daughter, with myself as the Main Member.I need to make my wife the Main Member (with myself and my daughter still part of it).I will still be the premium payer. Will I still be entitled to the tax refund/credit?

As you wife and daughter are dependents of yours you will be entitled to the medical tax credit, however SARS will request that the medical aid certificate still be made out to you and showing you making the payments.
