Tax Credit for Expenses for Medical Services Not Available in Your Area
You can claim this tax credit if you paid expenses to obtain medical services that were not available in your area. The following expenses are eligible for the tax credit:
- travel and lodging expenses paid to obtain, in Québec, medical services that were not available within 200 kilometres of your home; and
- moving expenses paid to move to within 80 kilometres of a health establishment in Québec located 200 kilometres or more from your former home.
To be eligible, you must have paid the expenses for yourself, your spouse or a dependant.
For more information, see the instructions for line 378 in the guide to the income tax return (TP-1.G-V).
You can claim an amount for meal and vehicle expenses incurred as travel expenses without having to keep or provide detailed receipts.
See the Government of Canada's website for more information on meal and vehicle expenses.
