Tax Deduction On Preventive Health Checkup Expense

Amongst the well-known and publicized tax deductions like life and 91 9766060629, PPF, NSC etc., there is one tiny deduction which is missed out and that is for preventive health check-up. This deduction was introduced from the assessment year 2013-14.

Following Are The Conditions For Claiming This Tax Deduction:

  • You need to incur an expenditure on preventive health checkup in a particular financial year.
    The preventive check-up (to qualify for the tax deduction) can be for self, spouse, parents, and dependent children only (Note: There is no limit prescribed on the number of children. Also, there is no deduction available on payment for in-laws, siblings, and children who are not financially dependent on you. )
  • Expenses can be in cash or in a mode other than cash.
    If all the above conditions are satisfied, the amount that’ll qualify for deduction is the amount spent in the financial year or Rs. 5,000, whichever is less. This limit of Rs. 5,000 is subsumed within the overall limit of Rs. 25,000 for mediclaim insurance premium. Unlike mediclaim insurance premium, there is no additional deduction in case a senior/super senior citizen undergoes the check-up.

To Assist You In Understanding How It Works, Let Us Look At The Following Scenarios:

  • Scenario 1: Mediclaim insurance premium paid: Rs. 15,000; Preventive heath check-up expense: Rs. 10,000 Tax deduction under Section 80D: Rs. 15,000 + Rs. 5,000 = Rs. 20,000
  • Scenario 2: Mediclaim insurance premium paid: Rs. 20,000; Preventive health check-up expense: Rs. 7,000Tax deduction under Section 80D: Rs. 20,000 + Rs. 5,000 = Rs. 25,000
  • Scenario 3: Mediclaim insurance premium paid: Rs. 24,000; Preventive heath check-up expense: Rs. 2,000Tax deduction under Section 80D: Rs. 24,000 + Rs. 1,000 = Rs. 25,000
  • Scenario 4: Mediclaim insurance premium paid: Rs. NIL; Preventive health check-up expense: Rs. 10,000Tax deduction under Section 80D: Rs. NIL + Rs. 5,000 = Rs. 5,000

So, as we can see from above, this deduction does not raise the overall limit of tax deduction above Rs. 25,000. Also, it can be claimed irrespective of whether or not you have a mediclaim insurance policy.

The utility of this tax deduction is especially in case of nuclear families. Because of a small family size, the mediclaim insurance premium is not high enough to claim the full benefits of Section 80D deduction of Rs. 25,000. And this is where tax deduction towards preventive health check-up are well used and fill the gap, and reducing the tax liability.
