What is My Medicare
MyMedicare is a voluntary patient registration program that aims to formalise the relationship between patients and their healthcare providers.
Healthcare providers include your:
- General practice
- General practitioner / regular doctor
- Primary care teams
By registering as a patient of High Street Medical Clinic and selecting your preferred GP, additional funding will be available from the government to assist your primary care team in delivering the care you need.
Registering with MyMedicare is voluntary and free.
Registering for MyMedicare is a quick and simple process that offers benefits such as:
- Greater continuity of care with your doctor
- Longer Medicare Benefit Scheme (MBS) funded telehealth consultations with your GP
- Improved health outcomes through formalised relationships
See the full list of benefits on the MyMedicare factsheet.
Eligibility. You’re eligible to register if you have:
- Medicare Card or Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Veteran Card
- Had 2 or more face-to-face appointments at your regular practice in the past 24 months or one face-to-face visit for practices in remote locations

We ask that you delegate High Street Medical Clinic as your usual GP clinic when registering with MyMedicare

If someone you know is incapable of providing consent to register in MyMedicare, a responsible person can provide consent and register on their behalf.
This can be the parent or guardian of a minor, a person who holds power of attorney or a guardianship order, or the next of kin.
If you believe someone in your care will benefit from registering in MyMedicare, talk to their GP or, for people in residential aged care homes, their residential aged care provider.
It’s free. You don’t have to pay to register or to maintain your registration.
Registration began on 1 October 2023. Your regular practice must be registered in MyMedicare to accept your registration.
