Medical Expense Recovery
How to Claim Back Cost from Medical Expenses:
If like many you have accumulated receipts for GP visits, blood tests, specialist visits, x-rays or ultrasounds and prescriptions, there are a number of ways you can claim some of these costs back.
The Med 1 form is no longer available. Health expenses are claimed through your tax return form.
1) If you are paying tax, it is possible to claim a portion of these costs against your personal taxes at the end of the year. You can only claim for expenses that you have receipts for. You can claim relief on the last four year’s health expenses.
If you are paying nursing home expenses, you may be able to claim relief during the year.

2) If you have private health insurance, depending on the plan you have, it may be possible to claim back a portion of these expenses. Please contact your relevant insurance company for more information.

"Handy place if you need a GP and you're in the city centre. I had a nasty burn and I was able to call in here and get seen on a work day evening. I rang at lunch time and made an appointment. Doctor was very nice and thorough. I could really trust her. Would definitely go here again."
"Been going there years and find the service there excellent. Doctors are thorough and professional. Would highly recommend."

Getting an appointment to be seen isn’t a hassle and are readily available. Follow up care and referral to relevant services are efficiently executed. I would definitely recommend attending this medical centre for your GP needs.”
"I’ve been with Jervis Medical Centre since 2009. It is indeed a great clinic with a very accomodating and polite staff. Dr. Hakhamanesh Nikookam is exceptionally thorough and professional. He certainly makes everything easy for me. He’s truly helpful. Highly recommended."
"Great place, go and see for yourself! This is not a Spa or a Restaurant. You get in, get the support you need, get out. Doctors are patient, competent and always nice! Going there since 2007 (vaccines, GP services, etc...) - never a bad experience."
"Highly recommended. I’ve been attending this medical centre for over ten years and would not attend anywhere else. Reception and Medical staff are friendly/approachable and extremely thorough. 5 stars well deserved!"
