Medicare information settings

Some of your Medicare information is available to view in your record. You can view, add or edit the types of Medicare information available at any time.

Medicare information available in your record

Medicare information is held by Services Australia and the Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) and is available in your My Health Record.

Information that may be available includes:

  • Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) information or, if applicable, Repatriation Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (RPBS) information
  • Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) – This includes immunisations you have received that are recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register.
  • Australian Organ Donor Register (AODR) information – This includes details of any organ and/or tissue donation decisions you have made. Only decisions recorded with the Australian Organ Donor Register will be visible.
