Can I claim C-Pap equipment needed to treat sleep apnea?

Hello, in 2020 I was prescribed and paid over $2000 for a sleep anea mouth guard and the expense was not covered by my insurance benefits plan. Is the expense tax deductible? Thank you!

"Assisted breathing devices that give air to the lungs under pressure, such as a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine or mechanical ventilator." are allowed to be claimed in your medical expenses as found in this Canada Revenue Agency link: Details of medical expenses.

 

For future references, we have included our TurboTax article here. What Qualifies As Medical Expenses When Filing Taxes? 

 

Thank you for using TurboTax.

Thank you for your help but that did not answer my question. I'm not asking about a CPAP device which is clearly stated as deductible. 

I'm asking about a mouth guard prescribed by a sleep disorder specialist and made by a dentist. I had to pay for the entire expense since the insurance plan did not cover it.

Thank you!

For specific information about a mouthguard, the Canada Revenue Agency can be contacted by using this link: How do I contact the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)? as this item has been prescribed and installed by two separate professionals.
