As you may be aware, the government has recently formed a new healthcare initiative called MyMedicare. This initiative was created in response to the Strengthening Medicare Taskforce of July 2022, and aims to deliver stronger relationships between patients and their healthcare teams through a voluntary patient registration system.

MyMedicare has a number of benefits for both the patient and their practice, such as:

  • Additional funding from the government to assist your primary care team to deliver the care you need
  • A formalised relationship with your general practice and GP, which has shown to improve health outcomes
  • Access to longer telehealth consultations

Additionally, further registration benefits for patients will continue to be added in future.

As your trusted family medical practice, we are aiming to notify and register as many of our loyal patients as possible. Abiding by this important government initiative will allow us to continue to provide you with the highest quality healthcare, supporting you in achieving you and your family’s healthcare goals.

At your local Madison Medical Practice, you will have access to a variety of registration options, making the registration process simple and straightforward. Equally, you can be assured that once you register to our practice, you are free to change that registration at any time to another practice or GP.

Register now through:

  • myGov or Express Plus Medicare app (instructions below)
  • Medicare Online Services, accessible via your myGov account
  • Completing a form, available at any Madison Medical Practice. Please note, you can only register with MyMedicare if you have had at least (2) consultations with a GP within our practice. Once this occurs and you wish to register, please complete the form and hand to our friendly reception staff who will upload to MyGov on your behalf.

For registration via iPhone or Android, you can download either the myGov app or Express Plus Medicare app through the App Store on your iPhone or the Google Play Store on your Android phone. To register via the myGov app, follow the below steps:
