Confused by all the private health insurance 'tax time' adverts on air at the moment? Don't panic, we're here to help and we promise to explain it in plain simple English (no jargon here!)
Since 1 July 2012, the Federal Government Rebate on Private Health Insurance is now means-tested.
In addition, the Medicare Levy Surcharge also increases progressively based on annual income levels. This means high income earners could potentially be taxed up to the maximum of 3% of their income if they don't have private hospital cover. But don't fear, the table below will help you to work out which tier applies to you and how much rebate you can claim.
We know first-hand just how confusing private health insurance can be. But that’s why we’re here – to make everything as simple (and affordable) as possible. So, if you can’t find the answer to your question on our website or in our health insurance brochure, don’t fret. Here’s our private health insurance FAQs for your perusal and peace of mind.
