Medicare cheques are stopping—make sure you register your bank details
Registering your bank account details with us is the easiest and quickest way to receive your benefit.
Do you have a Medicare benefit to claim?
From 1 July 2016 cheques will no longer be issued for Medicare benefits. To receive your benefit you will need to register your bank account details with Medicare.
When registering your bank account details, ensure your personal details are up to date.
You can register your details:
· by completing a Bank account details collection form and returning it to a service centre or by posting it to:
Department of Human Services
GPO Box 9822
in your capital city
· by calling us on 13 20 11* or if you are deaf or have a hearing or speech impairment, you can use the National Relay Service to contact us.
Once you have registered your bank account details with us, your Medicare benefit will be paid directly into your bank account.
