378 – Expenses for medical services not available in your area
You can claim an amount for the expenses you paid to obtain medical services that were not available in your area. The following expenses entitle you to a tax credit:
- travel and lodging expenses paid in 2020 to obtain, in Québec, medical services that were not available within 200 kilometres of your home; and
- moving expenses paid in 2020 to move to within 80 kilometres of a health establishment in Québec located 200 kilometres or more from your former home.
However, if these expenses can be included as moving expenses on line 228, or if they entitle you to the travel deduction on line 236, it may be to your advantage to claim them on those lines rather than on line 378.
