Register with a pseudonym

If you’re concerned about using your real name, you can use a different name to register. The first step to registering for My Health Record with a pseudonym is to apply for a Pseudonym Individual Healthcare identifier.

If you do not have a pseudonym, you can apply for one through Services Australia or call 1300 361 457.

Your Pseudonym Individual Healthcare identifier isn’t linked to your Medicare information and you will not be eligible to claim services under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) and the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS).
