I asked a question few months ago about getting charged for Medicare even though I am not eligible for medicare due to being a temporary resident. Since I was charged and I asked the people here how to go forth to get a refund,
most of you recommedned me to apply first for medicare exemption which i did and received a letter from Human Service - Medicare - that confirmed i am not entitled to Medicare benefist for 01 July 2017 to 30 June 2018.
Then I did the Tax Amendmant on the ATO site and this was in May of this year and until now I have received no response. When I check the update of my Amendmant on the ATO site, all it says is "Draft Exists". I am not sure what that even means. Tried calling them but the line says too many people waiting and i get disconnected.
Anyone can help me in this as all i am trying to do is get the money charged to me for using a service (Medicare) that i am not entitled to use in the first place as I am using a private health insurance.
