MyMedicare Is Here

Updated: Oct 4, 2023



What is MyMedicare?

MyMedicare is a voluntary patient registration system that aims to formalise the relationship between patients, their general practice, general practitioner (GP)

and primary care teams.


What are the benefits?

MyMedicare allows you to nominate a general practice and general practitioner as your regular healthcare provider. When you register in MyMedicare, extra funding from the Australian Government becomes available to support our practice to provide more of the targeted care you need. Patients who register with our practice in MyMedicare may benefit from:

  • longer MBS-funded telephone consultations, from 1 November 2023

  • in line with practice fee policy, where appropriate, longer bulk billed telehealth consultations for Commonwealth concession card holders, from 1 November 2023

  • currently*, Pension/HCC/VA Gold Card Holders can be bulk billed for non-procedural, no extra supplies, standard appointments in the weekday

  • eligible to join our practice's CDM (Chronic Disease Management) program for whole-person care, where several visits to your nurse and doctor team per year, can be bulk billed

  • more regular visits from their GP and better care planning for people living in a Residential Aged Care Home, from August 2024

  • connections to more appropriate care in general practice for people with chronic conditions who visit hospital frequently, from mid-2024.

Formalising the patient-practice relationship, like with MyMedicare, has been shown to improve health and wellbeing, and that is why we are inviting all of our regular patients to register in MyMedicare. Our practice will do our very best to help you register with us, especially if you are in the mature age group as these services can be very beneficial to you in the future.
