Medicare patient cheques are stopping

26 May 2016

The Department of Human Services latest News for Health Professionals contains a reminder that from 1 July 2016, Medicare patient cheques are stopping.  Patients will need to register their bank details so they don’t miss out on their Medicare benefit.

The change does not include Pay Doctor Via Claimant (PDVC) cheques as these will continue.
