Why is it important to register?
Don’t want to register? That is perfectly fine!
MyMedicare registration will not prevent patients from accessing care from other practices and health care providers.
Patients can complete registration in one of the following ways:
- Patients can commence the registration process in their Medicare online services (Medicare Online Account or the Express Plus Medicare mobile application) and the practice staff can then accept or decline the registration in MyMedicare.
- Practice staff can start the patient registration process in MyMedicare. The patient will then complete and provide consent for the registration in their Medicare online services.
- Patients can fill out a paper-based registration form at the practice (or provided by their visiting GP) and sign the form to provide consent. The practice will then enter the patient’s registration details into the MyMedicare system to complete the registration.
