My employer gives "credits" that I use to buy a medical/dental plan. This shows as a before-tax deduction on my pay stub. Can I include this as an eligible med expense?
There are 3 categories on my pay slip. Employer paid benefits (core life insurance), after-tax deductions (LTD, employee share purchase plan), and before-tax deductions (dental, medical, and health spending account). Can I include the YTD total for the dental, medical and HSA on my taxes an an eligible medical expense?
I'm confused by the CRA wording because it says I can't include "health plan premiums paid by an employer and not included in your income". But is this considered part of my income even if it's "before-tax" because it's not under "employer paid"?
