What is MyMedicare?
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.
Does it cost anything to register?
No, registration is free and optional.
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. 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.
Can I register with more than one clinic?
No, the goal of MyMedicare is to help strengthen the relationship you have with your preferred medical centre and doctor.
