More information

  • The calculator gives you an estimate only, as the exact amount can only be calculated when you lodge your income tax return. 
  • In addition to the Medicare levy, a surcharge of between 1% to 1.5% is added if you don’t have private hospital cover and your taxable income is above a prescribed amount. The calculator doesn't calculate the surcharge.
  • Medicare is a Commonwealth government program for all Australians and is accessed via the Medicare website or a Medicare Service Centre. Service NSW does not deliver any Medicare related services.
