About MyMedicare

Learn about the MyMedicare patient registration model and find out the benefits for patients, practices and healthcare providers.

What MyMedicare is

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

We have introduced MyMedicare as part of an ongoing commitment to strengthening Medicare for all Australians.


Evidence shows that seeing the same GP and healthcare team regularly leads to better health outcomes. Seeing your GP regularly and formalising the relationship you have with your GP and general practice through MyMedicare may lead to better health outcomes.

Registering with MyMedicare provides benefits to patients, general practices, and healthcare providers. To learn about these benefits, see:
