Ancillary Provider Recognition

Important information

Medibank are working towards moving away from accepting provider refunds via cheque and from issuing cheques to providers for claim benefits. Instead, we’ll use Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) to get payments to you faster – 2 to 3 business days.

What happens next?

You’ll need to provide your EFT details, which can be done in 3 simple steps:

  1. Go to Ancillary EFT form
  2. Complete the registration form
  3. Save and send the completed form to

We hope you understand the benefits of this change and we want to make the transition as smooth as possible. If you need help, we’re always here to assist. Contact our Provider helpdesk on web messaging or call 1300 130 460.
