Don’t get caught out by the Medicare levy surcharge (MLS) at tax time. Not having health insurance when you’re in a higher income bracket could actually cost you more than you think when it comes to your tax return.
Not sure what the Medicare levy surcharge is?
The Medicare levy surcharge (MLS) is a surcharge on individuals and families on higher incomes who don’t have eligible Private Hospital Cover.
The surcharge is calculated at the rate of 1%-1.5% of your income and applies to singles earning over $90,000 or a combined family income over $180,000 as shown in the table below. If you’re a single person earning $100,000, paying an additional 1.25% would cost an extra $1,500 per year in tax.
This is based on an Australian resident with no spouse or dependents and incorporates the tax free threshold. Taxation information is indicative only. Contact the Australian Tax Office or your accountant for information regarding your personal circumstances.
|Singles||Families||Medicare Levy Surcharge|
|Under $90,000||Under $180,000||0%|
|$90,001 - $105,000||$180,001 - $210,000||1%|
|$105,001 - $140,000||$210,001 - $280,000||1.25%|
|Over $140,001||Over $280,001||1.5%|
Naturally, all the hospital policies offered by CUA protect you from the Medicare Levy Surcharge.
You can calculate your income for the Medicare levy surcharge and work out how much the surcharge will cost you using the Medicare Levy calculator.
Another way to avoid the Medicare surcharge without the cost of Private Hospital Cover is to choose the CUA Health Public Hospital 100% option. To find out more contact us on 1300 499 260.
