Hi @Arjneupane,

 

You may be entitled to a part year exemption for Medicare Levy. You will need to confirm with Services Australia and if you are entitled to an exemption they will issue you with a Medicare Entitlement Statement.

 

If it is determined that you are entitled to the exemption up until a certain date, then you will be able to include the dates at the Medicare Levy exemption question on your tax return.

 

I hope this helps!
