What is MyMedicare?
MyMedicare is a voluntary and free patient registration system that aims to formalise the relationship between patients, their general practice, general practitioner (GP) and primary care teams.
You can register from 1st October 2023. Registering for MyMedicare does not mean that you will be bulk billed.
Are you eligible?
You’re eligible to register in MyMedicare if you have a Medicare card or Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Veteran Card. You also need to have x2 face-to-face visits at our clinic in the last 24 months.
People who are facing hardship will be exempt from all eligibility requirements. This includes people experiencing domestic and family violence and homelessness.
Parents/guardians and children can be registered at the same practice if one of them is eligible and registered. A parent/guardian must register a child under 14 years and provide consent on their behalf. Young people aged 14 to 17 years can register and provide consent without a parent/guardian.
MyMedicare patients will have access to greater continuity of care with your registered practice – Graceville Medical, improving health outcomes
You’ll also benefit from Longer Medicare Benefit Scheme (MBS) funded telehealth consultations with our GP.
