Expenses for hair transplant surgery paid to a medical doctor are typically eligible for a tax credit under Canadian Income Tax when the doctor evaluates the patient prior to the procedure and views it as part of the patient's mental health treatment.
According to paragraph 118.2(2)(a) of the Act, payments made to a medical practitioner for medical services are considered a qualifying medical expense.
For the payment to be recognized as for medical services, it must be related to a medical condition, including mental health.
In this view, payments made to a medical practitioner for hair transplant surgery would typically qualify as a medical expense under paragraph 118.2(2)(a) of the Act.
