Understanding your private health insurance tax statement.

HIF member tax statements will be mailed out from mid-July.

Members can also download the following tax statements from our Online Member Centre from July 4 onwards: 2015/16, 2014/15 and 2013/14. 


This statement will be provided to members who have held at least one Complying Health Insurance Product which is eligible for the Australian Government Rebate.


Your tax statement this year.

You may remember that since 1 April 2014, the Australian Federal Government now indexes the private health insurance rebate to a maximum of the Consumer Price Index (CPI). As such, your 2015/16 tax statement reflects the changes to the rebate.

  • If you paid premiums for your policy before, on, or after 1 April 2016, you may see more than one line of information on your tax statement. Please see below for an example of what the different rows of information represent (based on a 2015/16 tax statement template).

  • The rebate amount you're eligible to claim is no longer included in your statement. If you need to know how much you can claim and whether or not you have a tax liability, please speak to the ATO or your tax agent and they should be able to assist.

  • Other people may be listed on your statement. This can include people who are no longer HIF members, or who have passed away during the 2015/16 financial year.

  • All adults on your membership at the time of a payment are now eligible for a portion of the rebate. We will send a tax statement to each adult on your membership (except dependent children) so that they can claim their rebate.
