Earlier in Financial year 2017-18(AY 2018-19)

if Medical Insurance done for 2 or more years ,

Deduction available in the year payment made

Example

Suppose a person paid medical insurance premium on 1 April 2017 of Rs 10000

Insurance Term is from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2019 In this case,deduction available of whole 20000 in FY 2017-18 and no deduction will be available in FY 2018-19

Example

Suppose a person paid medical insurance premium on 1 April 2018 of Rs 10000

Insurance Term is from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2020

Hence now 10000 deduction available in both years 2018-19 and 2019-20

Particulars EARLIER  NOW
FIRST YEAR 20000 10000
SECOND YEAR 0 10000
