Credits and deductions

Medical expense must exceed the lower of $2268 or 3% of Net Income for the 2017 year for any Medical credit.

If you are doing Pension Splitting, or assigning other credits, and doing Joint Preparation of spousal retruns, then

software may assign Medical credit differently from your intent. The way to avoid this, as I do each year, is to do

separate ( ie not Joint) preparation of my return and my spouses return, which needs a little more confidence.

Note as always there is no such thing as a 'Spousal Return' with CRA. Each person is responsible for their own return, regardless of how it is genererated.

Or there could be a glitch...but I would be surprised.
