Your annual member benefit statement.
This statement will be provided to all members who have been paid health insurance benefits during the past financial year. The details below explain each heading on your statement. If more than one person is on your membership, each person’s claims will be listed separately.
Your Member Benefit Statement will also assist in determining whether your out of pocket health expenses are eligible for the Net Medical Expenses Tax Offset. Find out more about the Net Medical Expenses Tax Offset and how you can maximise your tax effectiveness
Are the services listed on your Member Benefit Statement correct?
Whilst HIF has a number of pro-active checks and regular audits in place to confirm the accuracy of health service provider invoices, there may have been occasions where HIF will have paid a benefit toward health service invoices which have been submitted incorrectly.
This typically happens where a health service provider accidently charges for the wrong or multiple items, or the wrong HIF member via HIF’s electronic claiming service or where a member has been hospitalised and their invoices are sent direct to HIF for payment, and therefore not initially reviewed by the member.
Where benefits have been incorrectly paid, HIF will recover them from the heath provider(s) involved so that this money can be made available for future claims. If you don't recognise any service, provider or item listed on your statement, please
contact us so we can investigate on your behalf.
