Prepaying your private health insurance may save you 30% tax

Changes to the private health insurance rebate

Means testing of the 30% rebate for health insurance premiums comes into effect on the 1st July 2012. The full details are in linked document below:

In summary if you are single and earning over $129,000 or a family and earning over $258,000, you will not longer get the 30% rebate on premiums paid after the 1st July. Given that the private health insurance rebate relates to the financial year in which the premiums are paid rather than the year in which the policy provides cover, a possible strategy may be to prepay private health insurance premiums, before the 30th June, and thus obtain the 30% rebate for the next 12 months at least.

Please contact Medical Financial if you would like specific advice as to whether this is appropriate to your situation.
