  • Private health insurance rebate calculator

    The private health insurance rebate is an amount the government contributes towards the cost of your private hospital health insurance premiums.

    This rebate is income tested which means your eligibility to receive it depends on your income. If you have a higher income, your rebate entitlement may be reduced, or you may not be entitled to any rebate at all.

    The rebate percentage is adjusted on 1 April each year.

    For more information, see Private health insurance rebate.

    The law has changed regarding the way registered health insurers provide you with your private health insurance details. It is now optional for registered health insurers to provide you with a private health insurance statement. A statement will only be provided if you request one from your registered health insurer.

    If you were covered as a dependent child on a family policy, use the information shown on the statement for that policy.

    The Private health insurance rebate calculator will use your estimated income for surcharge purposes for the current income year to help you work out:

    • your entitlement to the private health insurance rebate
    • the rebate percentage that you can claim.

    If your circumstances change during the current income year, your private health insurance rebate percentage may also change.
