1% Medicare Levy Surcharge

Nicole, single, Hospital intern: Nicole earns just over $90,000 with overtime, so she would have to pay a 1% Medicare levy surcharge if she does not have hospital cover.

Nicole graduated two years ago and works as an intern in a hospital in Sydney, NSW. Right now she is flat out working evening and weekend shift work to save for her future studies. Up until a few years ago, she was on her parents’ health insurance.

Because she earned $92,987 last year, her MLS this year will be $929.87. Taking out Smart Starter Hospital and Basic Extras cover, including her rebate of 17.289%, would cost Nicole less than $50 extra per month for a great starter health insurance package that guarantees her choice of Extras provider.

1.25% Medicare Levy Surcharge

Michael (Private Practice, Physiotherapist): Single and earns just over $105,000 with overtime, so he would have to pay a 1.25% Medicare levy surcharge if he does not take out hospital cover.

Michael is 32 years old, and works as a physio at a private practice in Perth, WA. He works flexible hours, with quite a lot of weekend work with sports teams, so his overtime pay accumulates fairly quickly. Earning $108,500 last year, his MLS this year will be $1,356.25.

For less than $1.50 extra a day with his rebate of 8.644%, Michael can get Smart Starter Hospital AND Essential Extras Cover which offers generous benefits.

1.5% Medicare Levy Surcharge

David (Private Practice, GP), and Sue (Hospital, Radiologist): A couple who earn over $210,000, so they would have to pay 1.5% Medicare levy surcharge.

David, 38, works as a GP at a private practice. Sue, also 38, works as a radiologist at a local hospital in Melbourne, VIC. They are planning to start their family very shortly.

Earning $233,000 between them in financial year 2015/2016, their MLS will be $3,495. For less than an extra $70 a week, including their rebate of 8.644%, David and Sue can get Prime Choice Hospital (with a $1000 excess) – comparable to the top cover of many other health funds – and Total Extras Cover, for comprehensive extras cover. And they’re now covered for pregnancy related services.
