MyMedicare is a new voluntary patient registration model. It aims to strengthen the relationship between patients, their general practice, general practitioner (GP) and primary care teams.

Registration in MyMedicare is voluntary for patients, practices and providers.

1 October 2023

All Australians with a Medicare card or Department of Veterans’ Affairs Veteran Card will have the option to register online via their practice or own their own.

1 November 2023
Registered patients will have access to MBS level C and D telehealth items. Eligible patients who are registered with a practice can benefit from the triple bulk billing incentive for MBS level C, D, and E telehealth items.

1 August 2024
Practices and providers who regularly visit registered patients in residential aged care homes can also benefit from the General Practice in Aged Care Incentive.

1 November 2024
Registered patients will be eligible for MBS chronic disease management plans only at the practice at which they are registered. This will reduce opportunistic claiming of these items by providers other than the patient’s usual doctor.

The Australian Government’s Health and Aged Care's website now provides information about MyMedicare. This website will be updated regularly so you can stay informed in the lead up to patient registration commencing from October 2023.
