How Do I Claim my GP Visit?

The quickest and easiest way to claim Medicare benefits is through your doctor’s practice if they offer electronic claiming.

They can send the claim to us through a secure internet connection or through the practice's EFTPOS terminal. Your Medicare benefit is paid directly onto your EFTPOS card used at the doctor’s or into the bank account registered with us.

If your doctor doesn’t offer electronic claiming, you can claim your Medicare benefit using one of the following options.
