MYMEDICARE

We registered for MyMedicare – now you can too

Mt Martha Village Clinic is registered for MyMedicare, a new voluntary registration system that will help us formalise the relationship between us and our patients.

MyMedicare allows you to nominate a general practice and GP as your regular healthcare provider.  When you register in MyMedicare, extra funding from the Australian Government becomes available to support our practice to provide more of the targeted care you need.

Patients who register with our practice in MyMedicare may benefit from:

  • longer MBS-funded telephone consultations, from 1 November 2023
  • longer bulk billed telehealth consultations for children under 16 and Commonwealth concession card holders at the new triple bulk billing rate, from 1 November 2023

Formalising the patient-practice relationship with MyMedicare, has been shown to improve health and wellbeing, and that is why we are inviting all of our regular patients to register in MyMedicare.  Over time there will be additional benefits.

If you have a valid Medicare card or Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Veteran card and have had two consultations in person with us in the last 24 months, you are eligible for MyMedicare.

To register as a MyMedicare patient, you can:

  • fill out and sign a paper registration form at our practice and we can complete your registration online in MyMedicare.
  • complete the registration process in your Medicare Online Account
  • register via the Medicare App
  • ask our team to start the registration process – you can then complete registration in your Medicare Online Account.
