This year, you may receive two statements, depending on your HIF policy.
- Your Private Health Insurance Statement (Tax Statement)
- Lifetime Health Cover (LHC) Statement for Members with LHC loading
1. Your annual Private Health Insurance Statement (1 July 2017 - 30 June 2018)
Your HIF tax statement contains all the information you will need to complete the Private Health Insurance sections of your tax return.
Important, please note: If you're an Overseas Visitor holding a Working Visa Hospital Cover you will not receive a Tax Statement or LHC Statement, as you're not entitled to claim a rebate on this level of cover. If you're an Overseas Visitor from a reciprocal country which has a health care agreement with Australia, you may be entitled to receive a rebate on the Extras component of your cover. The following countries have a reciprocal health care agreement with Australia: New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, Sweden, the Netherlands, Finland, Italy, Belgium, Malta, Slovenia and Norway. We recommend you contact your tax adviser or the Australian Taxation Office to discuss this.

2. Lifetime Health Cover (LHC) Statement for Members with LHC loading
If you held a level of HIF hospital cover which included a LHC loading during the financial year, HIF is required to send you a LHC 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.
