Claim medical expenses for my parents?


Need suggestions.

My Parents dont have health insurance. They have BP and Diabetic so regularly purchasing medicines.

1. Can the amount be claimed?
2. What is the process and documents required to claim and what more details are required?(like bills, bill on whose name, how much maximum)

You can claim under section 80DDB, it is mandatory for the employee to provide a proof of the need for treatment and a proof that the treatment has been actually undertaken.

Hi Prabha

  1. Yes you can claim for your Parents if they don’t have health Insurance.
  2. You can show it under 80D upto 50000/- without health Insurance with medical bills incurred on senior citizens
