What is

MyMedicare is a new voluntary patient registration model that will provide some extra Medicare benefits to all patients who have a Medicare Card or Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) Veteran card. You will only receive these additional benefits by registering your preferred clinic with Medicare.

Patients who have had two face-to-face consults with GPs in the clinic in the past 24 months can register for MyMedicare from 1 October 2023.


How will it benefit me?

The goal of MyMedicare is to strengthen the relationship you have with your preferred doctor and medical centre. Attending the same clinic and seeing the same GPs for your medical appointments will allow your chosen doctor to provide you with better ongoing care.

You can still attend other clinics, however, you will receive some extra benefits at your chosen clinic. If you want to choose our medical centre as your 'home clinic', you will need to register with MyMedicare, select our medical centre and choose your preferred GP. We welcome our current and past patients to choose our medical centre as their preferred home clinic.

Other benefits you will receive include: 


All registered patients will have access to longer MBS-funded telehealth consultations (telephone calls) with GPs at your registered 'home clinic' (Levels C & D). This means you and your GP can have more in-depth conversations (over 20 minutes) about your health.


Medicare will provide a larger rebate for these longer telehealth consults to help make it more affordable for you, but only at your registered home clinic.


From 1 November, the Australian Government is introducing a ‘Triple Bulk Billing’ incentive when GPs bulk bill children 15 and under, pensioners and concession card holders to help subsidise the rising costs of health care. This incentive may also apply to longer MBS telehealth consultations (Levels C, D and E) with your GP at your registered home clinic.

These initial benefits for registered patients will be expanded by the Australian Government over time, so registering our medical centre as your preferred ‘home clinic’ is important.
