If my spouse pays her portion of the Medical Aid (and half of our child's medical aid), can she claim this back from SARS, even though I am the Main Member? Obviously when I submit my tax return it would be less this portion.

No unfortunately you would have to claim this as you are the main member, but the tax benefit would be the same regardless of who pays for it.
