The Australian Government Rebate is an amount the government contributes towards your premium to make it more affordable.
If you’re eligible, you can choose to get the rebate by paying reduced premiums. You must nominate the income tier you fall under to ensure that we claim the right rebate amount for you. Alternatively, your rebate may be claimed through your annual tax return with ATO.
Am I eligible for the rebate?
All the people listed on the policy must be eligible to claim Medicare for you to receive the rebate.
How much is the rebate?
The rebate amount you are entitled to is based on the age of the oldest person covered by the policy and your income tier.
