When can I get a refund for treatment?
In accordance with Art. 219 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation, citizens are entitled to payment of compensation for funds spent on treatment abroad.

The non-taxable portion of the income is called a tax deduction. If a citizen of the Russian Federation is in official labor relations with the employer and pays income tax, he is entitled to a refund of 13% of the amount of expenses for foreign treatment. In this case, it does not matter who is undergoing treatment, the citizen himself or his relatives.

Article 219 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation also stipulates the condition for receiving such a deduction – treatment should be carried out exclusively in clinics licensed to provide medical services in accordance with the legislative framework of Russia. Foreign clinics are licensed in their own country, therefore, Russians cannot receive monetary compensation.

But if you conclude an agreement with a Russian clinic that has the necessary license from the Russian Federation and pay for its services in Russia, after which this clinic directs the patient, for example, to treat cancer abroad, the patient has the right to reimburse treatment costs.
