About the Australian government rebate on private health insurance

If you or your family pay private health insurance premiums, you may be eligible for an Australian government rebate.

Your costs may be reduced if you have a health insurance policy with an Australian registered health insurer that provides the following cover:

  • hospital
  • general and extras, or
  • both

The rebate reduces the amount you pay for private health insurance. The rebate amount you get is based on the age of the oldest person covered by the policy and by annual earnings.

You must be covered by the policy and be eligible for Medicare to receive the rebate.
