Don’t miss out on your benefit
Medicare benefit customer cheques have stopped.
Patients must now have their nominated bank account details registered with Medicare in order to receive their benefit.
This process is much easier and faster for patients, as your benefit will be paid into your bank account by EFT within 3–5 business days.
Register your bank account details with Medicare by:
- going to the myGov website and signing in to access your Medicare online account
- using the Express Plus Medicare mobile app. You can download it to your mobile device. For information, go to the Australian Government Department of Human Services website and search for ‘Express Plus’.
- going to the Australian Government Department of Human Services website to download the Bank account details Collection form (MS013), or
- calling Medicare on 132 011 (call charges may apply).
