Line 45200 – Refundable medical expense supplement
Note: Line 45200 was line 452 before tax year 2019.
You may be able to claim this supplement if all of the following apply:
- You entered an amount on line 21500 or line 33200 of your return
- You were a resident in Canada throughout the year
- You were 18 years of age or older at the end of 2021
- Your adjusted family net income is less than $54,146
In addition, the total of the following two amounts is $3,751 or more:
- your employment income from line 10100 and line 10400 of your return (other than amounts received from a wage-loss replacement plan) minus the amounts from lines 20700, 21200, 22900, and 23100 of your return (if the result is negative, consider it as "0")
- your net self-employment income (not including losses) from lines 13500, 13700, 13900, 14100, and 14300 of your return
If you reported income from more than one business on one specific self-employment line (13500, 13700, 13900, 14100, or 14300) and you are reporting a profit from one business and a loss from another, use only the profit amounts to determine if you meet the income requirement (noted above) to be eligible for this credit. If you are reporting a loss from only one business on one of these lines, do not include that loss.
Complete the chart for line 45200 using the Federal Worksheet to calculate your claim. You can claim this supplement for the same medical expenses that you claimed on line 21500 and line 33200 of your return.
