Your documents explained

The information below will help you get a better understanding of how to use your tax statement to lodge this year’s tax return.

Your tax statement

Also known as Private Health Insurance Statement, your tax statement contains information needed to complete the healthcare section of your tax return, such as:

  • Health insurance premiums paid to Medibank between 1 July 2017 and 30 June 2018.
  • Your share (if any) of the Australian Government Rebate on private health insurance.
  • Any other beneficiaries who were on the policy at the time payments were made last financial year.
  • The maximum number of days your private health insurance provided private hospital cover.

Here’s a helpful guide

To make tax time as simple and straightforward as possible, we’ve put together a “how to read guide” that shows you where all the information goes on your tax return.

View the guide.

Additional documents

Depending on your circumstances, you may also receive the following document along with your tax statement. Unlike the tax statement, you won’t need this to complete your tax return.

Lifetime Health Cover (LHC) Statement

The Lifetime Health Cover statement is a mandatory document that’s sent to all health fund customers who have a Lifetime Health Cover loading on their policy.

The LHC is a Federal Government initiative where a ‘loading’ can be applied to your premium if you take out hospital cover later in life. It acts as an incentive for people to take out hospital cover at an earlier age and maintain it. You can read more about the LHC here.

Please note, the LHC loading doesn’t qualify for the Australian Government Rebate on private health insurance.
