I was the principle member of my Bonitas medical aid and was paying R2,076 of the total premium of R5,788. My company paid the difference. Now I resigned and my husband applied to be the principle member through his company but they deducted the full premium. Will he be able to get some of these premiums back when he fills in his tax return at the end of the tax year.

Yes, he would complete the Medical Aid section of the tax return and input all the details per the Medical Aid tax certificate. He would then be eligible to receive a medical aid credit based on the contributions, number of dependents, qualifying expenditure etc
