  1. Any amount paid towards medical treatment of certain diseases is deductible from income u/s 80DDB.

    Any amount paid for the medical treatment is deductible from your income, subject to a cap of Rs. 40,000.

    If the amount is spent for a senior citizen (age 65 years or more), the upper limit is higher – Rs. 60,000.

    However, if you get the amount reimbursed by your employer or you get the amount from an insurer, you would not be able to claim deduction under section 80DDB.

    If you get partial amount from an insurance company or get a partial amount reimbursed by your employer, the balance can be claimed as deduction from your income.
