yes u can claim 80d also because 80c,80cc and 80ccd,80cce, combined of these max limit is 150000. this is different from 80d.

Details of Section 80D Any amount paid by an Individual or HUF to an Insurance company as Medical Insurance Premium i.e. premium paid in respect of Mediclaim Policy can be claimed as deduction under section 80D. Note: Life Insurance Premium is NOT covered under this category. Important points: Premium paid should be in respect of Mediclaim Insurance policy. The deduction is also available when the Taxpayer makes any contribution towards Central Government Health Scheme. Deduction is available only to Individuals and HUFs (Hindu Undivided Family). Corporates or Partnership firms cannot claim this deduction. Deduction is not allowed when the premium is paid by cash. In other words, the deduction will be allowed when the premium is paid by modes other than cash i.e. cheque or DD. Deduction is allowed in respect of following persons: Taxpayer Insured Person Individual On the health of taxpayer himself/herself, spouse, parents, dependent children of taxpayer Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) On the health of any of the member of the family

No matter you have already contributed u/s 80c but still you can claim 80d benefits. 80 D benefit is in addition to 80C benefit of Rs 1, 50,000/-. 80D benefits are available with respect to Health Insurance premium paid by any mode of payment other than cash. **Maximum Deduction available under section 80D of Income tax Act: -** For individuals less than 60 years of age, amount of health insurance premium paid or Rs. 15,000, whichever is lesser.

Section 80C and 80D are different sections of Income tax act. Limit for both sections are not interconnected. You may invest at any amount and get deduction upto rs 150000 in 80C whereas in 80D you may utilize deduction upto rs.15000 (20000 in case of person having age more than 60 years). Hence, you may invest in 80 D even you have invested u/s 80 C

In brief I can say that 80C and 80D is different. We can't club the deductions in the IT Return. They are separate set of deductions.
