Important Information

  • Your report may take up to 2 minutes to be created and returned to you, depending on the work load of the server and the volume of traffic on the internet.
  • If you require statistics at a more detailed level please contact us detailing your request and supplying your phone and fax numbers. Medicare Australia charges on a cost recovery basis for providing more detailed statistics and their provision is subject to privacy considerations.
  • The figures in the report include only those services that are performed by a registered provider, for services that qualify for Medicare Benefit and for which a claim has been processed by Medicare Australia. They do not include services provided by hospital doctors to public patients in public hospitals or services that qualify for a benefit under the Department of Veterans' Affairs National Treatment Account.
  • State/Territory is determined according to the address (at the time of claiming) of the patient to whom the service was rendered.
  • Month is determined by the date the service was processed by Medicare Australia, not the date the service was provided.
  • Monthly figures may vary due to the varying number of processing days in a month, which depends on the number of days in the month, public holidays, overtime worked etc.
  • Services/benefit per capita (ie. per 100,000 population) is calculated by dividing the number of services/benefit processed in a month by the number of people enrolled in Medicare at the end of that month.
  • A financial year is 1 July to 30 June.
  • This page is best printed in landscape mode.
  • Instructions on how to download the statistics into a spreadsheet are contained in Downloading Statistical Information.
