About your Private Health Insurance Tax Statement

Changes to
Tax Statement requirements for
health funds

Under Australian Government changes, health funds are no longer required to automatically provide members with an annual tax statement. If you lodge your tax return online with myTax or a registered tax agent, your health insurance tax information should automatically be populated in your tax return by late July. You won’t need to enter this information yourself.

Requesting a copy of your tax statement

You can call us after 20 July on 13 29 39 to request a copy be sent to you. Alternatively, you can access your statement through Online Member Services from 20 July.

Need help understanding your tax statement?

As a health insurer, we’re not qualified to offer you tax advice. But we can suggest some useful places to look:

Are you in Australia on a worker or visitor visa?

Please note that our Overseas Visitors Covers are not appropriate private patient hospital covers to avoid the Medicare Levy Surcharge for tax purposes. Therefore, you will not receive a tax statement for your OVC hospital cover.

If you earn money in Australia, you may need to pay tax and lodge a tax return. To find out more about whether you need to lodge a tax return, visit the Australian Tax office website for further details.

You can get a summary of the health insurance premiums and GST you've paid during the tax year by calling us on 1300 720 695.
