Primary Health Tasmania has a role in supporting local implementation of the Australian Government’s MyMedicare voluntary patient registration model.
MyMedicare aims to formalise the relationship between patients, their general practice, GP and primary care teams. General practices can register as a MyMedicare practice, and then patients can register a MyMedicare general practice as their regular practice.
When a general practice and its patients register in MyMedicare, the Australian Government will
provide extra funding to help the practice provide targeted care based on the needs of its patients.
The Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care website has comprehensive information for general practices and patients about MyMedicare. We have highlighted some key resources below.
