Tax time tip: Eligible medical expenses.

Did you know that you may be able to include your Public Service Health Care Plan premiums and your Pensioners Medical and Dental Services Plan premiums (listed in Box 135 of your T4A) as eligible medical expenses? And, if you are one of our more than 80,000 subscribers to Medoc Travel Insurance, a part of these premiums may also be eligible to be claimed as medical expenses on line 330 or line 331 of Schedule 1 of your Federal Tax return. If you are a Medoc® subscriber, you can complete their Income Tax Letter Request Form to receive a statement within 5 to 10 business days for the medical portion of the premium paid for your travel insurance plan.

Hi Dave, I live in Ontario. However that should not matter as the PSHCP is for all of Canada and is separate from Provincial plans

For those BC residents that may be interested, I researched my own question about BC Medical Service payments and the answer is, NO! You can only claim private insurance if you so choose to go that route.

Hi Ken, I have been traveling since I retired thinking that I am covered by the PSHCP. I hope I am not wrong but if not why do you need the additional coverage of "MEDOC?"

Does anyone know if we can claim the BC Medical Services payments we make monthly as medical expenses on our income tax returns? Thanks...
