Changes to arrangements for optometrists
From 1 April 2016 it will be easier for optometrists to request a Medicare provider number.
Optometrists are no longer required to complete the forms:
- A Common Form of Undertaking for Participating Optometrists, or
- The Schedule of optometrists on whose behalf optometrical services are provided by a non-participating optometrist (3171)
Optometrists will now only need to complete a Medicare provider application form.
The Medicare provider number forms for optometrists are:
- Application for an initial Medicare provider-registration number for an Optometrist, and
- Application for an additional location Medicare provider number for an Allied Health Professional
We have a range of forms for health professionals, practice staff and pharmacy assistants that can be downloaded to view, print, complete and return to us.
