Medical treatment for what???? I am assuming that you have spend it on yourself  and is towards preventive check ups  ...if yes, read the following else you can safely ignore knowing that there is no   deduction benefit available  under 80 D for any other medical expenses pertaining to treatment                                                                                                   <br />                                                                                                                                                                                     Typically, section 80 D is primarily for health insurance premium (25000 ( for self OR  spouse OR dependent children)  and 25,000/30,000 for parents/senior parents (increased to 50,000 for senior parents in Budget 2018) .                                       <br />                                                                                                                                                                                   <br />  However, there is a certain benefit towards preventive health check up also now in 80 D  which is however  limited to 5000 Rs total ( self , spouse , dependent children  OR Senior citizens ) and not individually for each person....                                                                                                                  <br /> Again note , that  the sum total of the insurance premium plus the preventive checkup expenses cannot still exceed and contained in the limits  defined above                                                                                                                                     <br />               . In your case however , it is not amount spend on health insurance and rather medical expenses(assuming towards preventive health check up ) ........the maximum benefit you can therefore derive is  5000 Rs under section 80 D.......
