Is it more beneficial to have a medical aid that covers less so your medical expenses (not covered by the medical aid) that qualifies for a tax return would be more therefore your tax return would be more?

No in the long run it would make more sense to have a medical aid which covers more. However make use of our Medical Tax Credits Calculator to play around with the figures to see what is best for you.
