From 1 July 2016, Medicare benefit cheques are stopping. This means patients/claimants will need to register your bank account with Medicare so your benefit can be paid directly into your bank account via EFT.
To register your bank account details with Medicare you will need to one of the following:
- online by using your Medicare online account via myGov or the express plus Medicare mobile app
- by completing a bank account details collection form available at humanservices.gov.au and using the drop box at your local Medicare office or post to Department of Heath Services, Medicare, GPO Box 9822, Perth WA 6001
- by calling Medicare 132 011
