I have submitted my return for 2013, but under source code 3810,I have employer tax contributions on my behalf,where they are paying half. I pay the other half which I claim as a deduction.

It seems as tho I am paying tax on this 3810 amount-as it is a taxable fringe benefit,(R16807)
Can I claim back ?(in addition to claiming my contributions as a tax credit)

You cannot claim the other half as a deduction, you will receive a general medical credit based on the number of members you have on your medical aid. Even though your employer pays half for you, you are still taxed on this amount, it is called a Fringe Benefit.
