Medicare Cheques to be killed off in July 2016!

No-More-Tax-Rebate-Cheques-This is a quick reminder to everyone. Give your bank account details to your treating practitioner before July. Medicare will stop issuing cheques to patients. The change — announced in the Federal Budget last year — does not include Pay Doctor via Claimant (PDVC) cheques, which will continue to be issued.

Patients can register their bank account details:
• Online — using their Medicare online account via myGov, or the Express Plus mobile app
• Over the phone — by calling 132 011
• In person — by completing a ‘bank account details collection’ form available at humanservices.gov.au and putting it into a drop box at a service centre.
