Are out of country medical expenses eligible?

Yup, out of country medical expenses are eligible, as long as the expenses fall within the CRA's eligibility guidelines for in Canada expenses!

Medical supplies and items (such as glasses, orthotics, etc.) purchased outside of Canada are also eligible (again, as long as they meet those in-Canada guidelines). 

What're those eligibility guidelines? Well, this is where we throw a bunch of links at you!

Last but not least, it's important to note that when submitting an out of country claim, we'll need to know the amount charged in the foreign currency, and the amount paid in Canadian dollars, so we can properly reimburse you (that's always a plus!)
