Checking your bank details with Medicare

It’s a good time to check that your bank details are up to date with Medicare. This helps make sure you’re getting the benefits you’re entitled to.

You can do this quickly and easily online using your Medicare online account through myGov or the Express Plus Medicare mobile app.
