Can monthly supplement expenses be included in the "medical expenses" I spend monthly as my medical aid is only a hospital plan.

Unfortunately not, these are not prescribed medication or tests.

Okay thanks, what about non-prescription meds like over the counter medicines?

You are only able to claim what SARS calls Qualifying Medical Expenditure which must be prescribed by a doctor or registered medical practitioner.
