Managing your health care information online

You can manage some of your health care information using your Medicare online account through myGov or the Express Plus Medicare mobile app.

What you can do using your Medicare online account

You can use your Medicare online account through myGov to manage some of your business with us.

You can:

  • submit certain Medicare claims
  • update your personal details, such as providing your bank details so we can pay your benefit directly into your account
  • view, update and request some of the information we hold, such as your Medicare Safety Net balance for the current calendar year and your child's immunisation history statement
  • view your Individual Healthcare Identifier audit history

Getting started

You need a myGov account linked to Medicare to access your Medicare online account and to use the Express Plus Medicare mobile app.

Create a myGov account if you haven’t already got one. Link Medicare to your myGov account by selecting ‘Services’ and then the link icon next to Medicare. Follow the prompts to link Medicare to your myGov account.

For help with creating a myGov account or linking services, read our online guides.

Your digital health record allows you and your doctors, hospitals and other health care providers to view and share your health information so they can provide you with the best possible care.
