Don’t miss a Medicare payment. We need your bank details to pay your Medicare benefits.
The quickest way to claim your Medicare benefit is at your doctor’s practice. But to get your money, we must have your bank account details.
If your doctor sends us your claim and we don’t have your bank details, we can’t pay your Medicare benefit. We’ll hold your payments until you give us your bank details.
We’ll write to you if we’re holding your benefits. The letter will tell you what you need to do and how to give us your bank details online.
Don’t have a Medicare online account? Go to myGov and link your Medicare service. You’ll need to have your Medicare card handy.
To register or update your bank details, you’ll need to give your:
- account number
- account name.
We’ll pay your benefit to your bank account each time you claim, or when your doctor lodges a claim for you.
