Medicare Liaison Officers

We work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and health care providers to improve access to our services.

We have Medicare Liaison Officers who work with communities and health services around Australia. They are culturally trained and can make it easier for you to access Medicare services.

They:

  • provide Medicare education and training to health service staff about Indigenous health care plans and the Medicare Benefit Schedule items Indigenous customers can get
  • increase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians enrolments in Medicare
  • make sure correct Medicare benefits are claimed
  • support health services with new Medicare programs and services
  • represent Medicare at local Indigenous forums and events.
