As an enrolled patient, you receive the advantage of priority appointments, which enables you to access appointments that are reserved only for enrolled patients. This allows you to receive the care you need promptly from one of our doctors in the centre that you are enrolled in.
Free Flu Vaccines
Protecting your health is of utmost importance. By enrolling with us, you have access to free flu vaccines, safeguarding you and your loved ones from seasonal flu.
Bulk Billed Consults
Bulk Billed consults may be available for all enrolled patients or for a certain period of time. They may also be offered to children under 16 years, healthcare or pension card holders, DVA patients or for annual health checks.
Access to Extended Telehealth
Convenience is key in today’s fast-paced world. By enrolling with Myhealth, you’ll be able to access extended Telehealth consults allowing for virtual consultations with our healthcare professionals from the comfort of your own space, receiving the time and care that you need.
Enhanced Chronic Disease Care
As an enrolled patient with Myhealth, you can look forward to receiving enhanced chronic disease care, tailored to your specific needs and delivered with a focus on improving your overall health and well-being.
Improved Continuity of Care
Enrolling with Myhealth ensures improved continuity of care with your dedicated healthcare team, fostering a strong and trusted patient-provider relationship for your ongoing health needs.
To register in MyMedicare, you must have either:
- a Medicare card
- Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Veteran Card.
Parents/guardians and children can be registered at the same practice if one of them is eligible and registered at the practice. A parent/guardian will need to register a child under 14 years and provide consent on their behalf.
You can complete registration in one of the following ways:
- As a patient you can commence the registration process using Medicare online services. This is via your Medicare Online Account (follow instructions under 'how to register') or the Express Plus Medicare mobile app (select 'MyMedicare' under services). The practice staff can then accept or decline the registration in MyMedicare.
- Practice staff can start the patient registration process in MyMedicare. As a patient you will then complete and provide consent for the registration through Medicare online services.
- As a patient you can fill out a registration form at the practice and sign the form to provide consent. The practice will then enter the patient’s registration details into the MyMedicare system to complete the registration.
DVA Card Holders
Patients who register with a DVA Veteran Card will need to fill out a registration form at the practice as registration via Medicare online services can only be completed using a Medicare card.
Enrol with your Myhealth centre today and experience a healthcare journey defined by quality, compassion and a true commitment to your well-being.
We are here to guide you towards a healthier tomorrow.
