Are you eligible for a rebate?

The Australian Government has agreements called Reciprocal Health Care Agreements (RHCA) with certain countries to enable residents of these countries to receive Medicare benefits when visiting or working in Australia for medically necessary treatment.

If you are a citizen of a country with a RHCA with Australia, and you take out private health insurance, you may be eligible for a government rebate. However, you may also need to pay the Medicare Levy Surcharge (MLS) as part of your tax.
