MyMedicare – Information & How to Register

MyMedicare is a new voluntary patient registration model. It aims to formalise the relationship between patients and their general practitioner (GP).

All Eastbrooke clinics have registered to participate in the MyMedicare program.

Patient Benefits

Evidence shows that regularly seeing the same GP and healthcare team improves health outcomes. Seeing your GP regularly and formalising your health partnership with your GP and general practice through MyMedicare may lead to better health outcomes for you and your family.

Registering in MyMedicare will notify your general practice that you have chosen them as your regular care team.  Additional funding will be available from the government to help them provide the care you need.

MyMedicare patients will have access to:

  • greater continuity of care with your registered practice, improving health outcomes
  • longer Medicare Benefit Scheme (MBS) funded telehealth consultations with your GP
  • triple bulk billing incentive for longer MBS telehealth consultations for children under 16, pensioners, and concession card holders from 1 November 2023
  • more regular visits from your GP and better care planning for people living in a residential aged care home from August 2024
  • 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:

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.

How to Register

There are multiple ways you can register with your chosen practice in MyMedicare:

  • Start the registration process in your Medicare Online Account or Express Plus Medicare Mobile app. ALL Eastbrooke clinics have registered for MyMedicare – so clinic staff will then accept the registration in the MyMedicare system.
  • Your practice may start the registration in MyMedicare, or you can ask them to do this. This will trigger a registration in your Medicare Online Account or Express Plus Medicare Mobile app, which you can then complete.
  • 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.
