From July 2001, Medicare Australia will be able to automatically cancel Medicare cheques made payable to an eligible General Practitioner via the claimant when they remain unpresented after 90 days, and pay benefits directly into GPs' financial institution accounts. Eligible GPs will need to apply to Medicare Australia to register for the 90 Day Pay Doctor Cheque Scheme.
To participate in this Scheme, eligible GPs must complete the application form and return it to Medicare Australia either by facsimile (08) 8274 9307 or to GPO Box 570, Adelaide SA 5001.
