Add children under 15 to an existing Medicare card
If you’re a parent or guardian, you can add a child to an existing card. This can be your current card or someone else’s card.
If the child is not on your current family card, you’ll need to give us some supporting documents, for example:
- Family Court Order
- Birth Certificate showing parental responsibility.
To add a child under 15 to an existing card, you’ll need to complete a form.
Add your baby to a Medicare card
We’ll add your baby to your Medicare card once they’re enrolled in Medicare.
You should enrol your baby in Medicare as soon as possible. You can do this using the Newborn Child Declaration you get from the hospital.
When you enrol your baby, we’ll send you a new Medicare card with their name on it. You can get a digital version of your updated card in the Express Plus Medicare mobile app.
If you can’t request to add someone to your existing card online, you can complete the Application to copy or transfer from one Medicare card to another form.
Send your form and supporting documents to us. You can find the email and postal address on the form.
