    Being a senior citizen, you are allowed a deduction of maximum 20,000 rupees u/s 80-D, for premium paid and also 5,000 rupees for preventive health checkup, but this is not in addition to 20,000 rupees

    So in your case you can claim deduction for Rs. 6,830 & for your expenses on other tests upto Rs.5,000
