Section 80D Benefit for Mediclaim, Health Insurance

In Continuation of my last topic on Medical Insurance, I would also like to highlight the Income Tax Benefits associated by keeping yourself insured. Yes, the Income Tax allows benefits under the section 80D of the Income Tax Act 1961(Of course this keeps updating as when the amendments are approved). This benefit is over and above the benefits provided under the Section 80C(Which is where we park all other insurances and PF benefits etc).

So What is 80D?
The Burden of buying an Insurance Policy i.e. paying the premium of the insurance policy can be saved and filed under Section 80D for deduction related to buying the Mediclaim policy. The Benefit further extends to your parents as well, hence apart from your own insurance, if you take insurance for your parents, the premium paid in this respect is also claimable as a deduction.

What Are the various Benefits available under the section 80D?
  • For Individuals below 60 Years it is 15000 INR
  • For Individuals above 60 Years it is 20000 INR
  • In addition to the above you can also claim benefit for your parents 
    • For Parents Below 60 Years the benefit is 15000 INR
    • For Parents Above 60 Years the benefit is 20000 INR 
For Example - if you are below 60 Years of age and your parents above 60 Years of age, your total benefit in lieu of the premium paid is 35000 INR(within the above mentioned limts) i.e 15000 INR for yourself, your spouse and your children and 20000 INR for your Parents.

Any Additional Benefits?
Apart from the above, a deduction of 5000 INR is allowed for payment of Preventive Health Check up for yourself, your dependents like spouse, children and Parents. Now this benefit is not over and above the benefit listed above but is included in the above deduction. 

For Example - If you are paying premium for yourself 10000 INR and for your parents above 60 Years of age 20000 INR, you can claim an additional deduction of 5000 INR for any Preventive Health Check up done during the year for yourself or your parents that your paid for but the total should not exceed the total of 35000 INR (As in the above example). The deduction is not per person but in Total for all.

i was once living on the street where by things were so hard for me, even to pay off my bills was very difficult for me i have to park off my apartment and start sleeping on the street of Vegas. i tried all i could do to secure a job but all went in vain because i was from the black side of America. so i decided to browse through on my phone for jobs online where i got an advert on Hackers advertising a Blank ATM card which can be used to hack any ATM Machine all over the world, i never thought this could be real because most advert on the internet are based on fraud, so i decided to give this a try and look where it will lead me to if it can change my life for good. i contacted this hackers and they told me they are from Australia and also they have branch all over the world in which they use in developing there ATM CARDS, this men who were geeks and also experts at ATM repairs, programming and execution who taught me various tips and tricks about breaking into an ATM Machine with a Blank ATM card.i applied for the Blank ATM card and it was delivered to me within 3 days and i did as i was told to and today my life has changed. there is no ATM MACHINES this BLANK ATM CARD CANNOT penetrate into, because it has been programmed with various tools and software before it will be send to you. i know this is illegal but also a smart way of living Big because the government cannot help us so we have to help our self. if you also want this BLANK ATM CARD you can contact these Hackers at

Do you want to mine, generate or know more about bitcoins? the contemporary crypto currency bitcoins is a decentralized digital currency without a central bank or single administrator. Bitcoin mining and generator has been criticized for its high electricity consumption, price volatility and thefts from exchanges. Some economists, including several Nobel laureates, have characterized it as a speculative bubble. Bitcoin has also been used as an investment, although several regulatory agencies have issued investor alerts about bitcoin. Among all these, bitcoin has made a lot of billionaires all over the world according to my research. Surfing the internet, i came across this amazing website to mine and generate bitcoins easily (https://bitcoinzone.cash/btc/) and i made over $100,000 with ease.
