The Australian Government Rebate on private health insurance (Rebate) is an incentive whereby you’re offered a Rebate on your private health insurance premiums. The level of Rebate on private health insurance is based on your household income and the age of the oldest person covered by the policy.
If you’re eligible for a Rebate you can choose to receive it either as a reduced premium or in a lump sum at tax time. Most people choose to take advantage of the lower premiums. See your State Premiums & Benefits Guide to help you work out which Rebate Tier may be applicable to you.
If you would like to register for the Rebate as reduced premiums on your policy contributions, simply fill out the Application for Australian Government Rebate on private health insurance form. Once registered you can choose to change your selected rebate tier anytime by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
