Medical aid claims

Myself and my wife are on the same medical aid. She is the main member and pays for it every month.
Myself the dependent have many medical expenses that where not paid out by the medical aid. Do I claim for these medical expenses on my tax return or should she as primary member claim?

You would claim the medical expenses you paid and she would claim the contributions to the medical aid.
