I was retrenched April 2014 but continued paying for my medical aid in my
personal capacity. I only claimed for out of pocket medical expenses and
not what I paid in my private capacity. I'm not sure If I could claim for
that and if I can now with 2017 submission claim for 2014 / 2015 medical
expenses.

Unfortunately you cannot claim for 2014/2015 medical expenses in your 2017 submission.
You could try and request your 2015 Tax Return for correction and enter these details now? This can be done on SARS eFiling.
