Important information for tax time.

It's that time of year again! 

HIF will be mailing out all Member Health Insurance Taxation Statements mid-July.

In the meantime, you can download a copy from the online Member Centre now.

Please note: Tax statements have not been produced for HIF members who hold an Overseas Visitors Cover policy,
as it is not an ATO requirement.

This year, you will receive two statements, depending on the product(s) you hold and if you have claimed on their cover during the past financial year.

  1. Your Private Health Insurance Statement

  2. Your Membership Summary

1. Your annual Private Health Insurance Statement (1 July 2015 - 30 June 2016)

Your HIF Private Health Insurance Statement ("Tax Statement") contains all the information you will need to complete the Private Health Insurance sections of your tax return. 

2. Your annual Membership Summary

If you held a level of HIF hospital cover during the financial year, HIF is required to send you a Lifetime Health Cover (LHC) Annual Statement. Your LHC Statement shows the adults covered by a HIF hospital product during the statement period, as well as any LHC premium loadings and/or periods of absence (any days without hospital cover) that may apply

If you have not received the statements listed above by 29 July 2016 but believe you should have, or you have a query regarding your statement, please call us on 1300 13 40 60.
