MyMedicare is a voluntary registration system designed to improve healthcare delivery and patient experiences. It allows individuals to choose their preferred general or nurse practitioner and healthcare team. 


The Australian Government is introducing a new voluntary patient registration model called MyMedicare to drive improvements in primary health care for all Australians and deliver new funding packages to primary care providers.

MyMedicare will strengthen the relationship between patients and their primary care teams by allowing patients to register with their regular general practice and select their preferred GP and providers within the practice.

Registration in MyMedicare is voluntary for patients, practices and providers.

Practices can now begin the MyMedicare registration process and link their providers to their practice before patient registration becomes available from 1 October 2023.

General practices that register will benefit by having access to:

  • more information about regular patients, making it easier to tailor services to fit the patient’s needs
  • new longer telephone items linked to MyMedicare
  • the General Practice in Aged Care Incentive from 1 August 2024, which will support regular health assessments, care plans and regular GP visits for people in residential aged care homes
  • new blended funding payments to support better care in the community for people with complex, chronic disease who frequently attend hospitals, that will roll out progressively across the country over three years from FY2024–25
  • Chronic Disease Management items linked to a patient’s registration in MyMedicare from November 2024, to support continuity of care for people with chronic and complex conditions.


NB: Patients who are not registered in MyMedicare will still be able to receive Chronic Disease Management items from their usual GP.

Patients will benefit from registering by:

  • accessing greater continuity of care
  • longer MBS-funded telephone calls
  • the triple bulk billing incentive for longer MBS telehealth consultations (Levels C, D and E) for children under 16, pensioners, and concession card holders

General practices should register for MyMedicare before patient registration commences on 1 October 2023.

To register, you must:

  1. make sure you are eligible
  2. link an organisation in PRODA to Health Professional Online Services (HPOS).
  3. access the Organisation Register in HPOS to:
    • register your practice
    • link your eligible providers.

If your practice is already registered and all participating providers are linked in the Organisation Register, you do not need to complete a second registration process.

Once these steps are complete, you do not need to do anything else until patient registration becomes available in October 2023.
