Are medical aid contribution deductible for tax purposes?

My medical aid is being deducted from my salary as just a deduction. Should the medical deduction not show on the PAYE 5 certificate as a tax deduction?

No - medical aid contributions are not tax deductible and will therefore not show on your PAYE 5 certificate.
