    Medicare Australia is an Australian Government agency, which provides national health insurance scheme while delivering a range of payments and services to the Australian community. Medicare Australia, formally the Health Insurance Commission, was established in 1974 to administer the universal health insurance scheme known as Medibank. Medibank was the name given to Australia's system of universal health insurance at that time.
    Medicare focuses on the two-tier system and the role of private health insurance. People who take up private health insurance are currently rewarded in a number of ways. They receive a Private Health Insurance Rebate that subsidizes 30% of their insurance premiums, increasing to 35% or 40% for people over 65.
