I pay R1900 monthly for me and 3 dependants on a health insurance. Can I claim these contributions back on my tax return as a out of pocket expense?

Is it health insurance or a hospital plan?

It is a health insurance.

Unfortunately not, this is not seen as a medical contribution and therefore not deductible.
