What is MyMedicare?

As part of an ongoing commitment to strengthening Medicare for all Australians, the Australian Government has introduced MyMedicare, a voluntary patient registration model that aims to formalise the relationship between patients, their general practice, general practitioner (GP) and primary care teams.
Seeing your GP regularly and formalising the relationship you have with your GP and practice through MyMedicare can lead to better health outcomes.

Registering in MyMedicare will tell your general practice that you see them as your regular care team and this will help them to provide you with better care. You’ll be able to access longer telephone telehealth consultations with any GP at your registered practice and they will receive funding from the Australian Government to deliver the care you need.

Continuity of Care

Enrolling with MyMedicare ensures improved continuity of care with doctors from Tamborine Village Medical, developing a strong and patient-provider relationship to look after your health.
