Hi

There are actually 3 lines pertaining to Health & Prescription funds for QC.

The contribution to the Health Services fund, based on your information, would calculate at about \$158. It is your income less 14285 X 1%.

The Quebec Prescription plan is applied if not covered by another plan.

Then there is just the Health Contribution which is \$100 per person at the income level noted.

Hey thanks for the info, would that mean the total from Health & Prescription would be \$258 based on your calculations? (I am already part presciption plan)

No problem - actually its' about \$158 for the Health Services Fund Ref. Line 446 and \$100 is called the Health Contribution Ref. Line 448.  Your Quebec prescription should be \$0 at Line 447.

Good morning,

"Regardless of whether you buy prescription drugs, you have to be covered by Québec's public prescription drug insurance plan and you must pay an annual premium, which we collect.

You can include the premium payable under the public plan in calculating the refundable tax credit for medical expenses (provided the period you use to determine the amount of medical expenses includes December 31 of the year for which the premium is payable). To claim the tax credit, you must complete Schedule B of the income tax return and enclose it with your return.

The maximum premium for 2015 is \$625.50 (per spouse in the case of a couple). To calculate the premium, complete Schedule K."
