Geneva: Tax deduction for medical expenses/insurance

Hi,

I've searched the forums and elsewhere, but not found a definitive answer - it doesn't help that my French is weak.

Are the monthly medical insurance bills are tax deductible in Geneva?

As far as I gathered it varies between cantons. The guide for geneva is a bit brief and vague (p50):

Nous entendons par frais médicaux à votre charge la part non couverte par la caisse-maladie et non prise en charge par un autre organisme pour les frais découlant de la maladie et de l’accident.

It doesn't seem to explicitly mention if the insurance bill itself is considered a medical expense.

Probably not, but I'd like to be sure.

The premium that you pay to your health insurance company isn't declared as a medical expense. It's deducted (up to an age-related ceiling) separately as explained on page 37 of the guide that you cite.

Thanks! I went through the document twice but somehow missed that.
