There’s no longer any need for you to go to the nearest Medicare office to claim your rebate. No forms. No queues. No worries. You can now claim your rebate electronically at our reception desks, where our friendly staff will simply lodge your claim with Medicare Australia through a secure internet connection. Your rebate is paid into your nominated bank account within 2-3 working days, saving you a trip to a Medicare office and the hassle of filling in forms.
To begin claiming this way you just need to provide Medicare Australia with the details of the bank account you’d like your rebate paid into.
How do I register my bank account details with Medicare Australia?
You can register your bank account details:
– by completing the Bank Account Details Collection Form, available at our reception desks
– by calling 132 011
– in person at a Medicare office
– online through Medicare’s Online Services at www.medicareaustralia.gov.au/online
Remember to have your Medicare card and bank account details (BSB, account number and account name) with you when you register.
