    Deduction under Section 80D is only available for the following 2 payments:-

    1. Medical Insurance Policy
    2. Preventive Health Insurance Check-up

    Payment of Hospital Bills when you are hospitalised cannot be claimed as a deduction under Section 80D as it is not covered in the above mentioned points.
