Australian Government Rebate

The Australian Government Rebate on private health insurance is a government initiative designed to make private health insurance
more affordable and accessible for all Australians.

The Rebate is income tested, so the less you earn the greater your refund. Your rebate will depend on your annual income,
the age of the oldest person covered and (for families) how many children you have.

How can I receive the Rebate?

There are two simple ways to claim the Rebate:

  • You can elect to receive a reduction in your premiums.
  • Or as a tax rebate in your annual tax return.
