Medicare Change Of Address
If you are moving house, it is mandatory that you alert Medicare of your change of address. This must be done in person, at one the many service centres located across Australia. If you live in a remote area that is too far away from one of their service centres, they may accept a form sent to them via mail, fax, or email, but this must be organised with a representative.
Before you go, make sure you compile a one or two of the following documents:
- Driver Licence
- Birth Certificate
- Marriage Certificate
- Legal Document
- Bills from your phone company, electricity provider, bank, or similar institution
After you’ve notified Medicare of your change of address, they will send you your new card in the mail. It is important to not discard your old Medicare card in this transition period; instead hold onto it until your new one has safely arrived.
