Additional Practice Locations

Please refer to the Ancillary Provider Recognition to check if your provider registration is with Medicare or directly with Medibank.

Providers registered with Medicare

If your current registration is with Medicare, any additional locations also need to be registered through Medicare. Further information regarding requesting additional locations with Medicare is available on the link here:  http://www.medicareaustralia.gov.au/provider/pubs/medicare-forms/ancillary.jsp

Provider numbers issued by Medicare are regularly updated into Medibank systems.

Providers registered directly with Medibank

If your current registration is with Medibank (currently Eye Therapist/Orthoptist, Hearing Aid Supplier, Optical Dispenser, Prosthetist and Orthotist providers), additional provider locations also need to be registered with Medibank. Complete a Medibank provider number Application Form and return to Medibank following the instructions on the form.

If you are an Alternative Therapist, you need to apply for a new provider location via a recognised Association.
