Health Expenses Overview

You can claim relief on the cost of health expenses. These can be your own health expenses, those of a family member or any individual’s, as long as you paid for them.

You cannot claim relief for any amounts that you have already received, or will receive from:


  1. any policy of insurance

  2. a public or local authority, for example, the Health Service Executive (HSE)

  3. any other source, such as a compensation payment.


You generally receive tax relief for health expenses at your standard rate of tax (20%).


Nursing home expenses are given at your highest rate of tax (up to 40%).


This section will explain the types of expenses that qualify for relief and how you can claim that relief.


The four year rule applies for claiming refunds.
