Your Centrelink Address Change Made Easy

When moving house, it’s mandatory that you let Medicare know about your change of address. Also, this cannot be done online, so you’ll have to do it in person at one of the many service centres that can be found throughout the country.

To find your nearest one, simply type in your location + ‘Medicare’ into a search engine and select one in your vicinity.

If you live in the countryside or a remote area and cannot easily get to one of the service centres, you may be permitted to send your forms and document scans to them via email, fax or even regular mail. If this is the case for you, please get in touch with one of Medicare’s representatives to be certain that you’ll be able to do this.
