MyMedicare FAQ's

What is MyMedicare?

MyMedicare is a new voluntary patient registration initiative by the Australian Federal government. It aims to strengthen the relationship between patients and their general practice, general practitioner (GP) and primary care team by facilitating improved quality and continuity of care.

Why should you register?
MyMedicare registered patients will have access to :

  1. Greater continuity of care with their registered practice, improving health outcomes

  2. Longer MBS-funded telephone calls with their registered general practice

Who is eligible for MyMedicare?

  1. Medicare or DVA (Department of Veterans’ Affairs ) cardholders

  2. At least two face-to-face consults with the same practice in the last 2 years

How do you register for My Medicare?
My Medicare registration will commence on October 1,2023.
Patient registration can be completed in one of the following ways.

  1. Self–registration via Medicare online services (Medicare Online Account or the Express Plus Medicare mobile application)

  2. Patients can fill out a registration form at the practice (or provided by their visiting GP) and sign the form to provide consent. The practice will then enter the patient’s registration details into the MyMedicare system to complete the registration

  3. Patients who register with a DVA Veteran Card will need to fill out a registration form at the practice as registration via Medicare online services can only be completed using a Medicare card

  4. Young people aged 14 to 17 years can register and provide consent without a parent/guardian. It is important to note that registration for a child under 14 years will need to be completed at the practice
