Reciprocal Health Cover

For DXC employees on assignment to Australia from a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement country:

  • Belgium
  • Finland
  • Italy
  • Malta
  • the Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Slovenia
  • Sweden
  • the UK

You will require additional coverage to avoid the Medicare Levy Surcharge.

Reciprocal Health Cover is an additional product that can be purchased in addition to your overseas visitors cover to help eliminate the Medicare Levy Surcharge. While it doesn’t offer you any additional benefits for health services, it could help save you money. At the end of the financial year, you’ll receive a tax statement which can be provided to the Australian Taxation Office to exempt you from paying the MLS.

Working Overseas Visitors Cover + Reciprocal Health Cover = No need to pay Medicare Levy Surcharge
