How can I claim the Australian Government Health Insurance Rebate?
Most eligible customers claim the rebate as a reduction to their premium, as it reduces the amount they pay on their Health Insurance. When you apply for your cover with us, let us know which income bracket you fall into and we can apply the corresponding rebate to your policy.
There are 3 options you can choose for how you want to receive a rebate from the Government:
- A higher amount than you’re entitled to, meaning you may have to pay the difference when you lodge your tax return
- A lower amount than you’re entitled to, meaning you should see the difference paid back to you at tax return time
- No upfront rebate, and instead claim your entire entitlement from the Government (if eligible) when you lodge your tax return
