How to explain the benefits of MyMedicare registration with your patients

MyMedicare is a new voluntary patient registration system that’s designed to strengthen relationships between patients and their GPs.

The key benefits for practices of MyMedicare are:

  • additional payments for longer phone and video consultations for patients who choose your practice as their usual practice
  • access to more information about regular patients, making it easier to tailor services to fit individual patient needs
  • building stronger relationships between patients and GPs

So, how do you encourage patients to register your practice as their preferred or usual practice in MyMedicare?

This factsheet takes a look at the common questions GPs are being asked about the new scheme.
