Medicare Benefit Tax Statement

We no longer issue Medicare Benefit Tax Statements.

The Medicare Benefit Tax Statement is no longer available. Read about the changes for claiming medical expenses on the Australian Taxation Office website.

The net medical expenses tax offset (NMETO) is being phased out. The NMETO will be limited to out of pocket medical expenses relating to disability aids, attendant care or aged care expenses. These expenses are not covered through Medicare.

From 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2019 the NMETO will be available in these limited circumstances. To claim the NMETO you will need to keep receipts for claimable items as part of your income tax return.

For further information about eligibility and how to claim the NMETO, read about medical expenses on the Australian Taxation Office website.
