02 Aug 12 Incorrect identifier on NIB annual private health insurance statements
The ATO advises that the NIB annual health insurance statements have been printed with an incorrect Health Insurer ID. The Health Insurer ID (label B) has printed as 1. The correct Health Insurer ID is NIB.
Agents should input the correct code NIB when completing Health Insurer ID in the tax return.
The ATO further advises that this issue only affects the printed NIB statements. The Health Insurer ID information being provided to the ATO is correct and will be made available through pre-filling services upon receipt.
