Line 45200 - Refundable medical expense supplement

Note: Line 45200 was line 452 before tax year 2019.

You may be able to claim a credit of up to $1,272 if all of the following apply:

  • you have an amount on line 21500 or line 33200 of your return
  • you were resident in Canada throughout the year
  • you were 18 years of age or older at the end of 2020
  • The total of the following 2 amounts is $3,714 or more:


If you have income from more than one business reported 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 when determining if you meet the income requirement (noted above) to be eligible for this credit. Otherwise, if you are reporting a loss from only one business at one of these lines, do not include that loss.
