Your tax statement shows:
- Your share (for taxation purposes) of the total health insurance premiums you paid to CBHS between 1 July 2019 and 30 June 2020 that are eligible for the Australian Government Rebate on Private Health Insurance;
- The amount (if any) of Australian Government Rebate you received; and
- The number of days you held an appropriate level of private patient hospital cover (if this is less than 365, you may need to pay the Medicare Levy Surcharge).
The ATO will receive the information on two tax statements, one for each membership.
The figures on your tax statement cover health insurance premiums we received during the financial year. For further assistance, please contact our Member Care team on 1300 654 123.
Please note that all payments made up to midnight on 30 June 2020 will be included on this year’s tax statement.
Your tax statement will no longer be available to download via the Member Centre inbox, and we’ll only mail or email you a copy if you request one. When you go to lodge your tax return online or through an accountant, your private health insurance information will be auto populated for you.
You can request a paper copy or a digital version by calling 1300 654 123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

More information is available at the ATO website.
The Medicare Levy Surcharge (MLS) is levied on payers of Australian tax who do not have private hospital cover and who earn above a certain income. The surcharge aims to encourage individuals to take out private hospital cover, and where possible, to use the private system to reduce the demand on the public Medicare system. For details regarding the Medicare Levy Surcharge, please visit the Australian Tax Office Medicare Levy Surcharge website.
