Medicare Entitlement Statement
Ask for a Medicare Entitlement Statement (MES) if you’re not eligible for Medicare and want to claim the Medicare levy exemption.
A MES tells you the period during a financial year that you weren’t eligible for Medicare.
You can get a statement if you weren’t eligible for Medicare for all or part of a financial year.
