We are now a MyMedicare practice and are inviting our eligible patients to register in MyMedicare. When you register, it will notify us that you have chosen IMC as your regular care team and will allow access to services that may help us to provide you with the care you need.

MyMedicare is open to Australians with a Medicare card or a DVA Veteran Card who have had 2 or more face-to-face appointments at our practice in the past 24 months.

Registering with MyMedicare is completely voluntary and free and your quality of care at Illawarra Medical Centre will not be impacted if you choose not to register.

To find out more visit https://www.health.gov.au/our-work/mymedicare or contact us on (08) 9208 6400.


We’ve recently introduced a new pre-screening questionnaire for appointments at IMC, to help us better understand our patients’ medical concerns and provide a better service to our patients.

The questionnaire is entirely optional, so you can simply ignore it if you wish. It does, however, provide your doctor with information prior to your appointment that can then be discussed in more detail on the day, enhancing your face-to-face time with your GP.

If you have any questions or concerns, please speak directly with your GP at your appointment or contact us on (08) 9208 6400.


Do you have a newborn? Are they enrolled with Medicare yet? Please make sure you register your newborn directly with Medicare and NOT through Centrelink.
We have had several instances where newborns have been enrolled through Centrelink but their registrations have not carried through to Medicare, which means that no Medicare card has been issued and they have not been able to receive their Medicare rebate for appointments at IMC.
To register your newborn with Medicare, visit Services Australia>>


Earlier this month, the Australian Government introduced MyMedicare to help strengthen Medicare and allow eligible patients to receive a more personalised and tailored approach from their regular health care provider.
