MyMedicare is a voluntary registration system where patients will be able to formally link themselves to their general practice and their GP, providing greater continuity of care and better coordinated care between your GP and other care teams.

By registering with MyMedicare, patients and practices can access a range of benefits, including longer MBS-funded telephone calls, triple bulk billing incentives for telehealth consultations, and tailored care for complex chronic diseases. 

Benefits for Patients

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

Registered patients will have access to longer MBS-funded telephone calls with their usual GP, promoting better accessibility and quality of care. 

Triple bulk billing incentives for longer MBS telehealth consultations will be available for children under 16, pensioners and other Commonwealth concession card holders registered with their general practice.

Connections to more appropriate care in general practice for people who visit hospitals frequently, from mid-2024.


You’re eligible to register in MyMedicare if you have:

Medicare card or Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Veteran Card

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.

Patients are able to register for any practice they choose, so long as they have been seen at the practice for a face-to-face consultation at least twice in the previous 24 months.

To read more about MyMedicare eligibility, please visit the Department of Health and Aged Care. 

How to Register

Start the registration process in your Medicare Online Account or Express Plus Medicare Mobile app.

Fill out a registration form at your practice. By signing the form, you are giving consent to participate in MyMedicare. Practice staff will then complete the registration in the MyMedicare system.
