Notice of Medicare levy exemption data-matching program

July 4, 2024 | Luke Wade

The ATO will acquire Medicare Exemption Statement data from Services Australia for the 2024 to 2026 income years, including individuals’ full names, dates of birth, residential addresses, entitlement status, and approved entitlement details.

The objectives of this program are to (among other things) ensure individuals are correctly claiming an exemption from payment of the Medicare levy and Medicare levy surcharge.
