Two questions relating to medical aid expenses:

1) I paid ~R5000 cash copayment for a medical procedure. Can I claim this medical expense on my tax return?

2) If I have medical aid gap cover can I use the total premium payments for the year as additional medical expenditure?

1. Yes you can claim this amount of R5000 under the amounts not recovered from medical aid.
2. Unfortunately the medical insurance is not deductible.
