In most circumstances the main member needs to claim the medical aid contribution, however it is accepted that if a spouse or child is paying for their parent then they would be able to make the claim, so you can go ahead and make the claim on your return.

Hi Tim - like your site
I'm over 65 - my wife is not
She is the main member on our medical aid
Should we submit claims seperately or is there provision for claims for over and under 65's on same claim form ?

Thanks very much for the complimentary words!
Your wife would make the claim on her income tax return as she is the main member and paying for your contribution. Unfortunately in your case the medical aid deduction will be limited to her age.
Any other qualifying medical expenditure which you pay for which is not recouped from the medical aid can be submitted as part of your return, if you make these payments.
I hope this answers your question?
