You will not get any deduction under Section 80D for Mediclaim premium for your in-laws. But if your spouse is making the payment, Section 80D deduction is available since your spouse would be making payment for his / her parents which is allowable under Section 80D. Please note your spouse has to make the payment from his / her taxable income.
