Claim the rebate from a Medicare Office
To claim the rebate from Medicare you are required to complete a rebate form and submit this, and proof your premiums have been debited (bank or credit card statements). This must be done each time you claim the rebate this way.
Section 1 requires the name of your health fund, your membership number with your fund and your personal details.
In Section 2 you will need to fill in some details that can be found on your bank/credit card statement
- Your health fund id - 3 letter code for your health fund
- The period of cover you are claiming - date your payment was debited to the date your next payment is debited
- Type of cover - Hospital, Ancillary (extras) or combined
- Membership type - Family, Couple, Single, Single Parent
You are only required to complete Section 3 if you are having an authorized representative (someone else) receiving payment on your behalf. If so, ensure that both signatures are present, and Medicare may require photo ID.
Complete Section 4 with your medicare details, sign and date the form, drop it into your nearest Medicare office and your cash will be in your hands!
