Having private medical coverage or having income below a certain threshold can qualify you for an exemption.
Also, you may qualify for the Medicare Levy Surcharge Exemption if you:
- meet certain medical requirements
- are a foreign resident
- are not eligible for Medicare benefits.
However, if you have any dependents, you will need to refer to both of your circumstances to determine if you qualify for an exemption.
