I have prepaid for a medical procedure that is not scheduled until next year. Can I still claim the medical expense for the prepayment this year?

Yes, medical expenses are claimed in the year in which the payment was made and not when the actual procedure happens. So for example, you paid for your January 2014 operation in December 2013, you will be able to claim the medical expense on your 2013 tax return.
