Here’s how we make this time of year a little less taxing for you.
You can access your Tax Statement in the member area from 14 July 2019.
Your health insurance tax information is also sent to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and will be pre-filled by 20 July if you lodge your return with myTax or a registered tax agent.

Each adult that was listed on the membership during this financial year can access a statement, even if you have cancelled your cover. This doesn’t include dependants over the age of 18.
Dependants don’t get their own statement as they can’t claim the rebate.
If you need a Tax Statement, you will need to get it from one of the adults covered on the policy.

Because of the change to the rebate that is calculated on 1 April each year, there are two rows of information on your statement. Each row will have a different benefit code, which indicates the level of rebate you are entitled to based on your age.
The LHC loading is a Federal Government initiative to encourage younger people to take out hospital cover. A 2% loading is applied to your base premium for each year you are aged over 30 and don’t have eligible hospital cover. You will receive a LHC statement if you have held hospital cover in the past financial year. Find out more about the LHC.
Your CAE is based on the age you were on 1 July before you first took out hospital cover. This is used to calculate your LHC loading.
This is any time that you haven’t held hospital cover during the financial year. This could be due to joining during the year, change of cover or the cancellation of your membership.
