I am paying roughly R1 400 on a medical aid for myself and a spouse.
The payments are made through the company, but the full amount is deducted from my salary per month, and the company does not contribute any portion. Does this mean that I am paying the medical aid myself, and can claim as such, or does this mean that I cannot claim these amounts for a tax return?

Yes it does mean that you are making the contributions to the medical aid yourself. Your medical aid contributions have been taken into account when calculating your PAYE. All you need to do is complete the number of members on the ITR12 tax return. Unfortunately you wil not be getting a refund because SARS has already taken into account your contributions when determining your PAYE.
