Hospital & Extras
Lifetime health cover
Under Lifetime Health Cover (LHC), you'll pay a 2% loading on top of the normal premiums for each year you don't have hospital cover by July 1 following your 31st birthday.
LHC increases by 2% for every year you don't join, up to a maximum of 70%, and can only be removed after 10 years of continuous hospital cover. This isn't just with Apia health insurance, but every health fund.
Medicare Levy Surcharge
The Medicare levy surcharge (MLS) is levied on Australian taxpayers who do not have an appropriate level of private hospital cover and earn above a certain income.
The base income threshold (under which you are not liable to pay the MLS) is $90,000 for singles and $180,000 for families.
If your taxable income is above the MLS thresholds and you don't have an appropriate level of private hospital cover, you may have to pay the MLS.
