There is no requirement for any Australian to have private health insurance, even if you make over a certain amount of salary. We are encouraged to, but there is no requirement for it.

Yep. She corrected me to. Apologies. She was referring to the MLS (and referred me to this site). Not required, but highly encouraged. In her case it was cheaper (because she got reimbursed by her employer) than paying the surcharge.

Again. Point conceded.
