(If No) Applicants not covered by the policy cannot claim the Australian Government Rebate on Private Health Insurance (excluding child only policies) and employers and trustees of organisations cannot claim the Australian Government Rebate on Private Health Insurance on policies paid on behalf of employees.

You may be entitled to a Medicare card if you are:
- a person who lives in Australia; and
- an Australian citizen; or

Any enquiries about Medicare eligibility can be made at any Department of Human Services service centre or by phoning 132 011 (call charges apply).
